If you are in Seattle and want to see some theatre, check out my old pal Maggie Lee in the "surreal comedic detective story" Do It For Umma, written by Seayoung Yim and directed by Sara Porkalob.

When her mother's ghost returns to haunt the Korean convenience store she once ran with an iron fist, a young woman embarks on an epic mission to find her mother's killer and avenge her suspicious death.

It's running February 2-17 at the Annex Theatre. Here are some more details about the show:

DO IT FOR UMMA

Written by Seayoung Yim
Directed by Sara Porkalob

February 2 - February 17
Tuesdays & Wednesday at 7:30PM
PWYC Industry night: Monday, Feb 15

In this surreal comedic detective story, the ghost of Hannah's recently deceased mother returns to haunt the Korean convenience store she once ran with an iron fist, shaming, cajoling, and needling her daughter into avenging her extremely suspicious death. While Hannah's older brother shirks off familial duties in favor of a romantic tryst with the local dry-cleaning maven, Hannah embarks on an epic mission to piece together the clues that will lead her to Umma's killer. Featuring a chorus of ajummas and a healthy dose of revenge, Do It for Umma is an absurd tragicomedy about a young woman trying to gain her mother's approval and protect her family's honor in the strangest of circumstances.
