Okay I’ll Tell You + Bi(?!)Lingual – Theater Performances

November 16, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm


As part of our ongoing commitment to the community, PAAFF’16 will include a series of FREE screenings and live theater performances November 16-17 at Fleisher Art Memorial in South Philadelphia.

Okay I’ll Tell You
Four adults, who were adopted when they were young, gather to share their stories of family, loss, love, pride, and identity.

Here, they challenge us to face their own questions, stare down narratives that keep being thrown at them, and wonder how, and
sometimes even if, this part of their stories matters.

Together, they mourn the closures they cannot have, embrace a future that has always been wide open, and celebrate the people with whom they have grown.

Please note: this piece is not specifically created for children and does contain cursing, sexual references, and racial anxiety.

The original creation of OK, I’ll Tell You received support from a 2015 Leeway Foundation Art and Change Grant.

Approximately 55 minutes with audience talk back afterwards.
