CTG to Present HOPE: PART II OF A MEXICAN TRILOGY Reading at Kirk Douglas Theatre, 3/1

Center Theatre Group welcomes the Latino Theater Company to the Kirk Douglas Theatre for a special reading of "Hope: Part II of A Mexican Trilogy" by Evelina Fernández. Developed with the Latino Theater Company and directed by José Luis Valenzuela, "Hope" will be performed as a part of DouglasPlus in the Douglas' rehearsal space, Upstairs@KDT, on Saturday, March 1 at 1 p.m.

"Hope: Part II of A Mexican Trilogy" is the second of three related plays produced by Latino Theater Company - "Faith: Part I" and "Charity: Part III" complete the trilogy. "Hope" originally premiered at the Los Angeles Theatre Center to critical acclaim in October 2011 (Fernández received a Best Play Ovation Award nomination). The DouglasPlus reading reflects a continuation of work by Fernández on the piece.

Set in a suburban Arizona community at the height of the Cuban missile crisis, a multi-generational Mexican American family circumvents the realities of a country facing political, social and cultural upheaval in 1960s America. Fernández's drama is infused with sounds of the era and challenges historic notions of what the American family looks like.
