Potluck

Kiya Basabas

Everything Lynda has done in her life, she has done to make her parents proud. When she discovers she’s pregnant, and has to sit through a potluck with a house full of people and her nervous Pākehā boyfriend, she struggles to balance her family’s cultural beliefs with her own.

Life as a first-generation immigrant is not always straightforward. Writer/Director Kiya Basabas created Potluck to pay gratitude to her upbringing and to highlight parallels other Filipino-New Zealanders may have experienced. Potluck touches on shared values within the Filipino community, but also how varied the immigrant experience is. It explores conceptions that others hold about Filipinos and challenges these. It also takes form of Filipino life in the present tense, which is different to what it was like even 10 years ago.

“Potluck is a love letter to my parents, family, the Filipino community, and all first-generation immigrants. But it is not only for these demographics. I would not call it a Filipino play, but a New Zealand play with Filipino-New Zealander actors. Ultimately, it is a show about family. They are who the audience will fall in love with.” – Kiya Basabas
