Cambria Kylinn Martin – Senior at Pace University studying Writing for Diversity and Equity in Theater and Media, and Film and Screen Studies – is seeking a collaborative team for her staged reading of her senior capstone, STRANGER GRANDFATHER, STRANGER GRANDDAUGHTER. Inspired by her award winning short play of the same name, it centers on Lynn when her 8-year-old classmate doesn't believe that she’s Mexican-American because she is white appearing. Through conversations with her monolingual mother and her bilingual father and 12 year-old brother, her and her family journey through self realization where Lynn must choose between assimilation or accepting her Mexican culture after her persistent denial of her language and culture in upscale Santa Monica, California.
