Running time: TBD

With crackling dialogue and heartfelt humor, Tanya Saracho explores what it takes to repair family relationships–especially when you share the blame for the damage. Erika is crazy desperate for her own apartment; so much so that she’ll take one sight unseen. Anything to escape Cynthia and Brian, her overprotective sister and her controlling brother-in-law. To be fair, Cynthia has reason to worry as Erika just left rehab and her definition of sobriety is “flexible”. As Erika fights for her independence, she realizes that kicking the pills was just her first challenge.

eseteatro eSe Teatro empowers local Latino artists to create, produce, and present professional theatre in English, Spanish, bilingual, and Spanglish. We strive for inclusion and self definition of our artists, representing "all the colors in the rainbow of brown" to educate audiences about the many expressions of our Latinidad in the U.S. eSe employs artists and provides them a high visibility professional platform within Seattle mainstream theatre. Our strong social component brings theatre to under-served Latino communities such as monolingual, low-income, homeless, and at-risk youth audiences. For more information on eSe Teatro, visit their website at eseteatro.org and Facebook at www.facebook.com/eSeTeatro .
