Cost

Adult: $45Concession: $38

Life seems to be looking up for the Ejercito family in 1996, despite a new boom of conservatism spearheaded by John Howard and Pauline Hanson.

19-year-old Lovia falls in love for the first time, her disenfranchised, alcoholic, disenfranchised father Jovy finally gets a job, and her brother Vergel lands a role in an ultra-fabulous amateur production of a Broadway classic. While the family embrace and challenge the opportunities presented to them, the return of a long-estranged presence rocks the lives of the Ejercito family to its very core.

Ate Lovia (AH-the LOW-viya) is a new Filipino-Australian drama, that explores what it means to stay loyal to your family, no matter how brutal it gets.

Proudly supported by Create NSW and City of Sydney. Development and Community Engagement support provided by National Theatre of Parramatta & Shopfront Arts Co-op's Open Shop Program.
