ABOUT

ESPERANZA RISING is the story of a young girl uprooted, transplanted, and re-grown on alien soil. The glorious, live music of mariachis carries Esperanza across the dividing line that cuts through the center of this play. That line divides two countries, two cultures, and two languages. It also separates Mexico and California, the year 1930 and 1931, and Act One from Act Two. Brought up in the lush and beautiful world of the Mexican aristocracy and then torn away and replanted in the impoverished world a migrant labor camp in California. Esperanza ultimately fulfills the promise of her name. In English with Spanish supertitles. For the whole family.

Sobre el Montaje

LOS ENCANTOS DEL RELAJO es una comedia que narra la historia de un joven rebelde llamado Manuel, quien muere y se va al cielo gracias a la devoción que le tiene a San Judas Tadeo de su abuela. Se decide regresarlo a la tierra para que conozca el bien y el mal, acompañado de dos virtudes: Esperanza y Fe.

Abajo, en el infierno, llama mucho la atención que un alma vuelva a la tierra donde ese alma, ahora llamado Manuel, tendrá que trabajar duro aguantando malos tratos y abusos y se enfrentará a tener que tomar malas decisiones aconsejado por emisarios del demonio.

ABOUT

Men On the Verge of A His-Panic Breakdown

This series of monologues chronicles the lives of various Latino immigrants dealing with transcultural shock of race and gender identity known as the “Hispanic breakdown.” The play is bracketed by the misadventures of the naive Frederico or “The Gay Little Immigrant That Could” who arrives in Los Angeles during the first day of the 1992 riots and believes he’s witnessing the filming of another Lethal Weapon sequel.  Other characters include Vinnie, a kept boy being asked to leave the home of his wealthy sugar daddy because he’s turned 30; Edward, a Latino actor passing for Anglo who gets a Latino part and has to deal with his real identity; the Demon Roommate, a lonely young man with an apartment a little too close to the airport; Paco, a Cuban restauranteur who was imprisoned by the Communists in Cuba for being gay and has now been exiled by his right-wing Miami family for the same reason; the Teacher, a stuffy, sexually repressed English-language instructor who abuses his Latino students when they can’t learn properly the “language of Princess Di”; and La Gitana, a drag Flamenco dancer struggling with AIDS as he stages his final performance. ADULTS ONLY.
