ABOUT THE PLAYS:

Insta Post Second Page.png

1)
The Pen by Diana Burbano
directed by Catalina Bucheli Serrano
About the Play: A story about immigration and justice, or the lack thereof. How far are you willing to go to help thousands of people? Share a post? Donate to a cause? Become an activist? Sacrifice your own life?

2)
7 Days to Mexican by Annette Sanchez
directed by Mat Espinosa
About the Play: In preparation for her son's presentation at his school's multicultural event, a Mexican-American mother realizes her children do not know anything about being Mexican, and has just seven days to help her family “become more Mexican” in this comedic one-act about culture loss, assimilation, and honoring our heritage.

3)
Pick Me Up by Rachel Lynett
directed by Pano Roditis
About the Play: Jenna, a law student, and Lely, an escort she has hired for the night, awkwardly share a hotel room as they attempt to figure out how they know each other in this funny, heartbreaking, endearing play about how outside pressures can push us towards doing something we aren’t even sure we want to do.

About “Water by the Spoonful”:

"Somewhere in Philadelphia, Elliot has returned from Iraq and is struggling to find his place in the world. Somewhere in a chat room, recovering addicts keep each other alive, hour by hour, day by day. The boundaries of family and community are stretched across continents and cyberspace as birth families splinter and online families collide. WATER BY THE SPOONFUL is a heartfelt meditation on lives on the brink of redemption."
