Up Next:

EL NOGALAR

Written by by Tanya Saracho
Directed by Sara Guerrero

Monday June 26th at 7PM
In the Lyceum Space

Following Amigos’ June Reading of Chekhov’s The Cherry Orchard, we move to Saracho’s adaptation of this classic, set in modern day Northern México where class pressure and social turmoil threaten traditions, families, land and lifestyle in contemporary México. The Galván family, led by Matriarch Maité, have come back to their expansive pecan orchard, el nogalar, to reclaim their land after she has squandered away the family fortune. While away, the México they once knew has slowly been taken over by a drug war. Using the relationships between the Galván sisters and Maité with her daughters, the play focuses on whether the women will choose to adapt to the new world around them or be left behind, clinging to the past.

Tanya Saracho was born in Sinaloa, México. She is a playwright and Television Writer who's worked on "How To Get Away With Murder," HBO's "Looking," "Girls," and "Devious Maids." Named "Best New Playwright" by Chicago Magazine, Saracho has had plays produced at: Primary Stages in NYC, 2nd Stage in NYC, Denver Theatre Center, Oregon Shakespeare Festival, The Goodman Theater, Steppenwolf Theater, Teatro Vista, Teatro Luna, Fountain Theater, Clubbed Thumb, NEXT Theater and 16th Street Theater.
