Having premiered as part of the 1455 Summer Literary Festival on July 18th, Aguas Arts Ink presents "Drinking With Dad" by Alexis Camins.
In the tradition of the memory play, Camins pens a fantasy meeting between an estranged father and son. Set in the Philippines, “Drinking With Dad” excavates the humor and pathos of abandonment to ask if such relationships can be rebuilt.
