WELGA is a Filipino American coming-of-age story of a high school teen, Johnny Montalban, whose dream of becoming a famous musician is met with the dream of his mother's for him to get his diploma first. Set in San Francisco's SoMA Neighborhood, the play not only deals with this clash of dreams, but also with today's educational system, community issues, and labor rights while being inspired by the Filipino agricultural workers who led the 1965 Delano Grape Strike.
