About Mala

Funny, brutally honest, and ultimately cathartic, Mala puts a sharp focus on what it means to put our loved ones first, right to the very end, and what happens when we strive to be good but don’t always succeed.

Named one of the best plays of the year by The Boston Globe, WBUR’s The ARTery, and DigBoston when it premiered at ArtsEmerson, this powerful one-woman show written by and featuring Huntington Playwright-in-Residence Melinda Lopez (Sonia Flew, Becoming Cuba) dances between a mother’s growing frailty and a daughter’s quest for grace — all set during an epic Boston winter.

The Huntington is pleased to present the ArtsEmerson production of Mala.

Approximate run time: 80 minutes with no intermission.

Seating at select performances of Mala is limited, but seats are released every day for sale. Please call the Huntington Box Office at 617 266 0800 to learn about our Advanced Wait List and be upgraded to a seat automatically when it becomes available.

The Huntington has provided me the time and space to continue to create new work as their playwright-in-residence, and I am grateful to them for remounting the original production, as this play is extremely close to my heart.”— Huntington Playwright-in-Residence Melinda Lopez
David Dower“It was a true joy collaborating with Melinda on the premiere of her play, Mala. The humor, intelligence and courage that Melinda brought to her writing immediately resonated and provided a great foundation to tell her important story, universal to so many.”— Director David Dower, ArtsEmerson's Co-Artistic Director
