Good Cuban Girls

By Iraisa Ann Reilly
Directed by Jose Aviles
Sept 28-Oct 13
Bob & Selma Horan Studio at the Arden’s Hamilton Family Arts Center, 62 N 2nd Street, Philadelphia

Marisol is a Cuban-American woman studying poetry at a liberal arts college, just far enough away from home. After a couple of days home for the summer, her gringo boyfriend visits to share in a traditional Cuban dinner and meet her family. Rice and beans are served up with an awkward argument about culture and politics. Marisol is left to choose between her family and her future, harboring a secret that may cause her grandmother's instantaneous death. Good Cuban Girls is a coming of age story that navigates the first generation American struggle for cultural preservation in the face of exile.

YERMA

Suggested admission $7

By Federico Garcia Lorca
Directed by Tanaquil Marquez
In Collaboration with Philadelphia Artists Collective’s
Venture Reading Seriesat the Proscenium at the Drake Theatre, 302 S. Hicks Street, Phila. PA.

The title Yerma translates to “barren” in English, a brutal theme in this 20th century Spanish classic. Having been married to Juan for 2 years, Yerma is unable to get pregnant, which develops into a conflict that completely consumes her. As she desperately seeks for ways to inspire fertility, she is driven to the edge and falls into severe consequences. Lorca’s Yerma is layered with poetry, passion and repression and focuses on social expectations on women and motherhood. The show is devastating and powerful, as Yerma exposes a woman being trapped by her own body.

OEDIPUS EL REY

By Luis Alfaro
Directed by Tanaquil Marquez
March 6-22

Amid the sizzling rhythms of the LA barrio—the gang capital of America with the highest recidivism rate—a juvenile delinquent rises to be a king… But his passion for one woman will violate our most sacred law. Luis Alfaro adapts the “mother” of all tragedies and the ultimate story of forbidden love.

La Fábrica

New Play Development Series is an incubator for new Latin work that will nurture local Latin playwrights and provide resources and a development process that will hone the work toward a full production. A playwright will be paired with a director and actors in workshop setting with the sole purpose of allowing the playwright to hear and see the story come to life. This will gives the playwright the opportunity to make changes, create addition or to be inspired by trying new ideas.
