La Vida Latina: Confessions Of A Mexpatriate

Apr 21, 2018
Raul Garza

Sun. 4/22 6pm.   Confessions of a Mexpatriate  by Raul Garza follows the journey of Samuel, a modern-day, media-minded Mexican American who travels to Mexico to try to unplug from his American side and connect with his roots in the land of his ancestors. His account of what happens is both funny and fearful—and may say as much about the land he left behind as the one he has entered.


Sun. 4/15 6pm.  Featuring Emmy winners Bobby Cannavale and Martha Plimpton. DISSENTING ADULTS explores how we live in personal bubbles and don’t care to exit them. First, from David Auburn comes a riveting, witty world-premiere commission for Playing on Air: GUN SHOW. Two couples out for dinner react and over-react to the news that one of their party has purchased a pistol. It's a brilliantly written piece that deals with the way we navigate the serious and the frivolous in strangely equal measure and the battle of the sexes.
