About the Show
What happens when you mix The Importance of Being Earnest, The School for Wives and a Narco Telenovela? You get Bad Hombres/Good Wives, a hilarious new comedy from Culture Clash co-founder Herbert Siguenza. Meet Don Ernesto, a muy macho cartel lord of Sinaloa who is used to getting exactly what he wants. In this case, what he wants is Eva — the young woman he sent to a convent to be trained to become his perfect, submissive wife. En route to meet her future husband, Eva bumps into Mario, the dreamboat son of a rival Narco capitan, and her heart leaps. Lust, love and war are in the air. Leave it to Armida, the smartest maid in Mexico, to dream up the scheme to inspire a double wedding that ends the war! Featuring lots of festive Mexican songs to sing along to.
“The man [Herbert Siguenza] is a gift to the cause of thoughtful, provocative and typically very funny theater, and San Diego can be grateful for grabbing him back after he had drifted away to Los Angeles.” – James Hebert, San Diego Union-Tribune
