Mala

Summary

May 7 – June 12, 2022

Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre
Conrad Prebys Theatre Center

By Melinda Lopez
Directed by David Dower

She was always the good daughter. But now her mother, in the twilight of her life, calls her “mala”—bad to the core. Melinda Lopez’s funny, brutally honest, and ultimately cathartic solo play is an irreverent exploration of how we live, cope, and survive in a challenging moment, and what happens when we strive to be good but don’t always succeed. Theatermania calls it “deeply affecting,” while The Boston Globe named it “one of the best plays of the year. Piercingly honest and exquisitely moving.”

In our commitment to provide access to the widest San Diego audience, The Old Globe will present Mala in Spanish on selected dates.
