Vilma Silva performs ‘MALA’ at Grizzly Peak Winery

October 7, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm PDT

Award-winning MALA, written by Melinda Lopez and directed by Penny Metropulos, is an irreverent exploration of how we live, cope and survive in the moment. Oregon Shakespeare Festival veteran actor Vilma Silva plays Mala, as she cares for her ailing mother.

With pointed emotional language, sharp humor and piercing honesty, this powerful one-woman show is a moving portrait of the way taking care of family challenges, deepens and changes our bonds to the ones we love.

“One of the things that I think the show articulates,” Lopez explains, “is that there are times when we are called on to be everything to the people who love us the most. We have had little in the way of training or preparation to do these things. And so we make poor choices, we do things wrong, we try so hard and often fail. That felt really important to acknowledge.”

This production has adult themes and language, and it runs 90 minutes without intermission.
