First, two more great reviews!
“With a light hand on some heavy issues, Pamatmat digs into sex, sexuality, assimilation, and even abuse, seen through the eyes of two sets of siblings. Despite the serious subject matter, he makes these vibrant characters often a joy to watch.”
“Pamatmat avoids cute, neat categorization for these complex characters… Director Ralph B. Peña keeps the cross-cut action hopping… Katigbak ignites a warmth on stage that draws us all in.”
Review: House Rules at HERE Arts Center
(Exeunt Magazine, April 5, 2016)
“Pamatmat’s story is well told and there are many truths to be found. What makes his writing most effective is the fact that, like life, there is not a total resolve for his character’s conflicts. Sometimes, self-will and communication fails us. Fortunately, Pamatmat’s play does not.”
Reviews: House Rules & The Humans (Manhattan Digest, April 5, 2016)
Next up, the Theatre Development Fund (TDF) made an awesome Meet the Theatre video for Ma-Yi Theatre Company! Want to see me be super nervous and talk about Sam Chanse’s play with the dancing morel? Then, get a load of this:
Also, we have more promo videos for House Rules. Just FYI, I didn’t script these things. My cast is just this clever, and Rehana Lew Mirza’s editing is just that silly.
Finally, I was fortunate enough to chat with Arpita Mukherjee at Stagebuddy about House Rules and Asian-American Theatre at large. You can find that interview here.
House Rules runs until April 16th, and tickets are available here. Don’t miss it!
