This summer, Atlantic will be hosting an exciting group of writers, including Quiara Alegría Hudes, Carlos Murillo, Cusi Cram, Charise Castro Smith and Martín Zimmerman. In addition to the workshops at LATINO MIXFEST, Marco Ramirez will be in residence with the Atlantic Theater Company to develop a new play under a new fellowship with Time Warner. "We're thrilled about continuing to build our family here at Atlantic with this talented group of artists," says Jaime Castañeda, the company's Artistic Associate. "This year is as strong as ever and we hope you can be a part of it."

DAPHNE'S DIVE
by Quiara Alegría Hudes
directed by Thomas Kail
A corner bar in blue collar Philly. Six regulars have gathered for years, telling jokes and spinning yarns to the melodies of the pianist who lives upstairs. Until one day, when a neglected girl literally falls into their lives and changes this joint forever. A play about a garbageman, an artist, a politician, a biker, and a rebel who share a drink and an unexpected chance at salvation.

FEATHERS AND TEETH
by Charise Castro Smith
directed by Tea Alagi?
On a spring evening in 1976, in the quaint kitchen of a nice Midwestern home, Carol makes a pot roast and Chris listens to rock and roll records. But when Arthur accidentally runs over a mysterious creature with his car, he unwittingly cracks open the full force of grief and suspicion that lies just below the family's pristine surface. Part dark fairytale and part revenge tragedy, Feathers and Teeth shows us just how far we can be carried away by the strength of our convictions.

...IN THE FOUNTAIN
by Cusi Cram
directed by Gaye Taylor Upchurch
At a small, international school in Rome nothing is quite as it seems. A small scandal unravels as five lives collide and combust in this darkly comic piece about love gone sour and picking up the pieces after you lose everything.

THE SOLID SAND BELOW
by Martín Zimmerman
directed by Jaime Castañeda
Julian Flores narrowly escapes a prison sentence and lands in Iraq where he's anything but a model soldier. But when an I.E.D. blast nearly costs him his life, something changes for Flores. Soon the adrenaline, clarity, and intimacy of battle become something he can't live without-even after he returns home.

YOUR NAME WILL FOLLOW YOU HOME
by Carlos Murillo
directed by Oliver Butler
Danny Santiago's novel Famous All Over Town was a gritty, authentic depiction of Chicano life in East LA told through the eyes of a troubled teenager. But who is the real Danny Santiago? And is the work authentic? Charlie Chaplin. Communists in Hollywood. HUAC. The Blacklist. 50s B-Monster Movies. Architectural Fantasias. Fake Latinos. Jesse James.
