Photos: PALESTINE, NEW MEXICO Opens at Mark Taper Forum

Palestine, New Mexico celebrated it's opening night on Sunday, December 13 at the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles.  Written by Richard Montoya for Culture Clash and directed by Lisa Peterson, Palestine, New Mexico is set on an American Indian reservation in the Southwest, and follows the fate of Army Captain Siler who has returned from Iraq with a secret she just can't hold on to any more. She is determined to set the record straight about the death of the tribal chief's son, but she discovers she is considered a dangerous outsider rather than a messenger of truth. In the battle to tell her story she unleashes far more history than anyone wanted to hear, or tell.

The cast features Richard Montoya, Ric Salinas, Herbert Siguenza, Russell Means, LaVonne Rae Andrews, Michelle Diaz, Julia Jones, Geraldine Keams, Brandon Oakes, Robert Owens-Greygrass, Kirsten Potter, Kalani Queypo and Justin Rain.

Palestine, New Mexico is playing now through January 24 at the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles.  Tickets range in price from $55-$65 and can be purchased by visiting www.centertheatregroup.org.
