One summer day, a young Filipina realizes she can’t say no to white people. Then, the local convenience store runs out of chocolate milk and starts only selling white milk… Which obviously means that there is a serious problem in the world. Plum BOMB is a comedy that investigates what it takes for young people of colour to say no and whether it even matters or not. How loud do we scream in order to be heard? What do we blow up in order to be seen?

Each year, Paprika develops and produces new plays and/or creative projects of various lengths with the support of professional artist mentors. Projects can be presented in a variety of forms. Performance based works that are experimental incorporate non-linear forms of writing, visual art, dance or other art forms. They can also be conventional plays, solo-performances or large-scale productions. Paprika provides each company an artistic mentor who is a professional with expertise in specific areas of focus. The team at Paprika works with the company to find the best mentor pairing and to ensure their project is as strong as possible.
