Event Notes


The Chikahan Company presents an encore showing of THE ACT OF CARE by Lauren Andrei Garcia and Conrad A. Panganiban

When an unexplainable virus begins to infect several patients and nurses at a local hospital, a reserved Filipina nurse, Olivia, is visited by mythological creatures who lurk in the shadows of the illness. Are they the cause or the cure? The Act of Care is a horror drama that explores the humanity and inhumanity of the American Healthcare System. A celebration and collaboration of local Filipinx American artists in the San Francisco Bay Area, The Act of Care is a theatrical project that brings together the craft, artistry, and the minds of artists and leaders of our community who have long sought after a platform and opportunity to showcase their works to be fully recognized in the American Theater.
