The Theatre Group at SBCC Presents GROUND, Now thru 5/10
For its final offering in the 2013/2014 season, The Theatre Group at SBCC will present the new play GROUND by Lisa Dillman, directed by R. Michael Gros, in the Jurkowitz Theatre, today, April 23-May 10, 2014.
When Zell Preston inherits her father's struggling pecan farm and moves back to her childhood home on the border of New Mexico, she finds that the once tight-knit community is now split by culture, law, visible and invisible boundaries. The government has cracked down on the undocumented immigrant population, dividing families and pitting neighbor against neighbor. A premiere at the 2010 Humana Festival of New American Plays, this very moving and challenging new work is a personal drama about very big issues.
GROUND will feature Robert Demetriou, Jennifer Marco, Adrian Marquez, Marisol Miller-Wave, Maria Oliveira, Rain Ramirez and Peter T. Rojas.
