Dragonfly Multicultural Arts Presents Play About Community, Love, Loss, Dreams and Pirates

Dragonfly Multicultural Arts Center, a community theater in residence at duCret Center of Art, will present India Pale Ale, a drama about a Punjabi Indian family in Wisconsin. Directed by Priya Iyer, India Pale Ale “is a story about family, love, history, dreams, and loss; a story about food, community, beer, storms, and pirates.”

In a small Wisconsin town, a tight-knit Punjabi community gathers to celebrate the wedding of a traditional family’s only son, just as their strong-willed daughter announces her plans to move away and open a bar. As they come together for feasts filled with singing and dancing, one generation’s cherished customs clash with another’s modern-day aspirations, and ghosts and pirates from the family’s past linger in everyone’s thoughts—until one sudden event changes everything.
