El Cipitio: A Salvadorian Odyssey
By Ric Salinas and Herbert Siguenza, based on the novel by Randy Ertll
Saturday, September 2 at 1 PM

 

Travel with Teatro Cuscatlan as they tell the unbelievable tale of El Cipitio, a three-foot tall, pot-bellied, dark Indio with backwards feet. El Cipitio jumps out of myth into the dark bloody history of El Salvador from the Spanish conquest to the civil war that helped to create the world's deadliest street gangs, MS13 and 18th Street. El Cipitio is a dark satiric look at international and domestic policies and how it has affected Salvadorians living here and in their country.

Fabulous Monsters
By Diana Burbano
Saturday, September 2 at 4:30 PM

When punk rock exploded in L.A., Sally and Lou were there: feminists, Latinas, queens of noise. One went pop, one stayed punk, but sparks from their tumultuous friendship remain. Decades later, can they overcome old wounds, forgive each other and rock as hard as they ever did?

(w)holeness
By Lily Padilla
Sunday, September 3 at 1 PM


A support group for sex addicts meets every Monday in the little seaside town of Pescadero, California. But where is Dr. Jurgensen, the therapist who’s supposed to lead the group? And is Dr. Jurgensen’s earnest intern who's left to lead the group in over her head? When Matt shows up, any illusion of a “safe space” shatters and the group must confront difficult truths and unexpected points of connection in a comedy about addiction, identity and sex. “(W)holeness” asks the question, “Am I too damaged to be loved?”

Guadalupe in the Guest Room

By Tony Meneses
Sunday, September 3 at 4:30 PM


While Steve mourns the loss of his wife Claudia, her mother Guadalupe and best friend Raquel work to translate her books into Spanish. Though Guadalupe and Steve have nothing in common but shared grief, they bond in the most unexpected ways. This new play is a deeply moving and very funny celebration of life, new beginnings and the healing power of telenovelas.
