Writer. Solo Performer. Social Justice Activista.
My one-woman play, a work of creative nonfiction, has been enthusiastically received by audiences and reviewers around the country. The hour-long show is a mashup of personal narrative, lessons in American history, and stories about respecting people’s names, even when they don’t sound like “real” American names. The 20+ characters I portray invite audiences to experience what’s in store for a Mexican-American girl who leaves a segregated South Texas town in search of educational and economic opportunities. This work offers political commentary about life in the United States by weaving history and comedic insights into stories about names, and challenges you to consider how open and welcoming you really are.
Starting, Friday, September 23, shows at 7:30 pm. Each hour-long show will be followed by a 30-minute talkback on various topics related to social justice. Stay tuned for the names of speakers and topics.
