FADE by Tanya Saracho

Directed by Dena Martinez
Sacramento Premiere
March 13 – April 14, 2024

When Lucia, a Mexican-born novelist, gets her first TV writing job, she feels a bit out of place on the white male-dominated set. Lucia quickly becomes friends with the only other Latino around, a janitor named Abel. As Abel shares his stories with Lucia, similar plots begin to find their way into the TV scripts that Lucia writes. Fade is a play about class and race within the Latinx community, as well as at large, and how status does not change who you are at your core.

“Saracho’s writing is so sharp, full lives take shape with an economy of words […] a powerful piece with a fresh voice and a bright future..” —DENVER POST


PERFORMANCE LENGTH: 90 Minutes, No Intermission

FEATURING: Caleb Cabrera, Jordan Maria Don

Capital Stage’s season of “True Identity” continues with Tanya Saracho’s social commentary, Fade. The semi-autobiographical piece explores the inner turmoil that comes with feeling adrift in one’s culture and the struggle to reconcile that with class disparities and unrelenting ambition. Like last month’s American Fast, Fade focuses on the experiences of a woman of color in a competitive field.
