Cherry Lane Theatre
38 Commerce St. (Bedford & Hudson Street) New York, NY 10014

Acclaimed playwright and screenwriter Tanya Saracho (Mala Hierba at Second Stage; writer and co-producer of the hit ABC series, "How to Get Away with Murder") comes to Primary Stages with the New York Premiere of Fade, a behind-the-scenes comedy about the burgeoning friendship between Lucia and Abel, two Latinos of Mexican descent working at a ruthless Hollywood studio. Lucia is a tenacious novelist, newly hired to write for a TV detective series and struggling to find her place among a team of domineering white male co-workers. Abel is one of the studio's janitors, compassionate to Lucia's difficulties and generous with his opinions and personal anecdotes which keeps them in an absorbing tête-à-tête throughout their workdays. As their bond grows, Abel's stories quickly blur with those Lucia is writing for the show and they both find themselves in the center of their own not-quite-made-for-TV drama.
