Last night my new play THE MADRES was read in San Diego and it was magical.
The reading was presented by Amigos del Rep of the San Diego Rep. It was directed by the incredible Herbert Siguenza and featured the talents of Arianna Ortiz, Catalina Maynard, John Padilla, Daniel Penilla and Alexandra Lemus.
I have wanted to write about the unbelievably courageous and inspiring Madres de La Plaza de Mayo/ Las Madres de Los Desaparecidos for a long time.
This play is dedicated to them and their extraordinary stand in the face of the indescribable circumstances of the “Dirty War.”
I learned so much about the play last night by hearing it reflected back to me by the savvy San Diego audience that filled the house.
Gracias, San Diego!
Gracias, Amigos del Rep!
