UCLA Alumni Association is pleased to partner with Artists at Play and their Free Theatre for Young Audiences performance in celebration of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, “ALLOS: The Story of Carlos Bulosan” by Giovanni Ortega ’04. Like so many immigrants seeking a better life, Carlos Bulosan followed his brothers from the Philippines to Seattle. He lived and worked across California, taking whatever jobs he could to survive, finding his voice in writing and fighting for workers’ rights along the way. With courage and a strong spirit, he came to love and call this country home. The play is suitable for middle grade children and older.
Guests are encouraged to watch the production online at bit.ly/AAPAllos, then join us for a panel discussion with Artists at Play producing artistic leader and founding member Stefanie Wong Lau ’00, playwright Giovanni Ortega, director Fran de Leon and one of the actors, to learn more about this true story and the artistic process.
