Eva and Michael's quiet love life is interrupted by the Baltimore Riots of 2015. Their identities are challenged by growing racial tensions, secrets kept from each other, and complicated Latinx-African American relations. Man Down examines racial violence through the lens of a romantic relationship. An essential new play diving into complicated family relationships, political correctness, and the importance of candid 'race talk'.
Edinburgh Fringe Reviews:
"A perfect blend of poetry and activism"
"the subtlety with which the relationship of Eva and Michael is explored, as well as the privilege of Eva and Eddy’s upbringing, makes the piece stand above the rest"
★★★★ A Younger Theatre
" ...this is also a play for Mr Trump. No wonder Amnesty International longlisted it for their 2018 Freedom of Expression Award. A strong contender."
90% rating The Fountain
A farcical collage text telling the story of five young women trapped
in their mother's boudoir. With verbatim text used from U.S. Congressional healthcare bills, feminist icons and authors such as Audre Lorde and Gloria Steinem, as well as text from historic witch trials. Mama's Coming is a nut-busting satire dissecting gender norms, women's rage and the impending doom of patriarchal healthcare.
2017; in ongoing development
Several mornings of a torn apart, but functioning Mexican-American family living in Lincoln Heights are shown in loud, comical, and intense scenes. Papa is a sweet patriarch dealing with a drinking problem. His daughter Soraya is a headstrong young woman who's spent half of her life trying to fill her absent mother's shoes; oh, and find peace with a Catholic God. Principito Adrian is in high school dealing with bullying, and his blossoming sexuality. A slice of life, kitchen-sink dramedy that dissects everyday mierda in a modern Chicano familia. A play that bounces between English and Spanish.
