Irma Mayorga's CASCARONES to Play Teatro Paraguas, 2/9

Cascarones, a new play by Irma Mayorga, takes place in San Antonio, Texas.

Teenager Mary-Margaret Caceres, who works for the transit authority giving people bus route directions, attempts to understand the mapping of her community and city. As she navigates the daily challenges her family faces, in a dreamlike state she encounters John Wesley Powell, Francisco Vázquez de Coronado, and the other men whose actions in the past influence her present. Cascarones was developed at the Eugene O'Neill Theatre Center Playwrights Conference.

Directed by Daniel Banks, the play will feature Nicholas Ballas, Joey Chavez, Nicole Gramlich, Jonathan Harrell, Bernadette Peña, Rick Vargas, and Cristina Vigil. Stage Managed by Alexis Miles.

The performance is set for Sunday, February 9, 2014 from 6:30-8:30pm at Teatro Paraguas , 3205 Calle Marie, Santa Fe. Reservations: (505) 424-1601.

This reading is part of No Passport's 30/30-a US Latin@/NoPassport reading scheme that is presenting 30 Latina/o plays in 30 days across the US (#3030NP).
