Critically Acclaimed LYDIA Continues Through Feb 28 at Yale Rep
Yale Repertory Theatre's east coast premiere of Octavio Solis's searing new play, LYDIA, directed by Juliette Carrillo, opened to rave reviews last week and continues through Saturday, February 28.Set in the 1970s on the Texas border separating the United States and Mexico, LYDIA is an intense, lyrical, and magical new play that marks the Yale Rep debut of award-winning playwright Octavio Solis.
The Flores family welcomes Lydia, an undocumented maid, into their El Paso home to care for their daughter Ceci, who was tragically disabled in a car accident on the eve of her quinceañera, her fifteenth birthday. Lydia's immediate and seemingly miraculous bond with the girl sets the entire family on a mysterious and shocking journey of discovery. LYDIA is an unflinching and deeply emotional portrait of a Mexican immigrant family caught in a web of dark secrets.
