I am currently in residence at Breath of Fire Latina Theater Ensemble, workshopping my original play, Olvidados: A Mexican American Corrido.
Breath of Fire, based in Santa Ana, California, is an award-winning theater company, and Orange County's only Latina theater ensemble. The workshop production is being directed by Breath of Fire's founding Artistic Director, Sara Guerrero, with original music by Breath of Fire company member Moises Vázquez.
In June, I was also awarded a very generous Faculty Research/Healey Endowment Grant from UMass in support of the workshop production, to be produced at the UMass Department of Theater in Spring 2022.
My original play, Olvidados: A Mexican American Corrido, will be presented as a staged reading, streaming live on Zoom, on October 6th at 6:00 PM EST. The reading will be followed by a post-show discussion facilitated by production dramaturg and UMass Professor Dr. Priscilla Page. The reading is directed by Breath of Fire Artistic Director Sara Guerrero.
