Based on the award-winning novel of the same title by former San Francisco Chronicle reporter Benjamin Pimentel, the play dramatizes the lives of a group of elderly Filipino World War II veterans as they wait for the full military benefits promised to them for fighting alongside US troops. The veterans pass the time near the Powell Street cable car station, reminiscing about women they’ve loved, family members they’ve left behind in the Philippines and memories of war. As real-life fixtures in SoMa’s large Filipino-American community, the men upon whom the novel is based have gradually passed away before receiving full recognition for their service. This English language world premiere is a tribute to their bravery in the face of war and tenacity in the face of indifference.
