Tickets are $10.

On Imperial Beach in San Diego, a traumatized and houseless man, Estoy, fights to justify his reasons for killing his mother, Temay, a Filipino American nurse. Filled with anguish, Estoy recalls the inevitable events that led up to the murder. This freely adapted version of Aeschylus’s Oresteia, written and directed by Guelan Varela-Luarca and Chay Yew, is an epic saga of power, displacement, and crime in an immigrant Filipino family in California.

Co-produced by East West Players.

House of Baluyot contains sexual language and situations that are not recommended for persons under the age of 15.
