Margarita is having a rough time. She's unemployed, broke and newly unattached. She's on her way to catch a bus to New York City to interview for a menial job she probably won't get. She could use a miracle. A strong spring breeze blows one of those ubiquitous black plastic bags into her path...and into her life. This is no ordinary bag and this is no ordinary day.
Manuel Igrejas' previous plays include Shrinkage, Kitty and Lina, Miss Mary Dugan and Hassan and Sylvia (both Fresh Fruit Festival Best Play winners.) Margarita and Max is directed by David Hilder who won the 2009 Best Director Award at the Fresh Fruit Festival and directedHassan and Sylvia. His other NYC credits include Blogologues and Daddy.
