Mi Abuela, Queen of Nightmares
COME SEE THE WORLD PREMIERE OF THE STAGE PLAY "MI ABUELA, QUEEN OF NIGHTMARES"!
Maya, a young Salvadoran-American woman, navigates trauma and family mythology through magic and folklore as she comes of age in Phoenix, Arizona. Her story explores mother-daughter relationships, mixed race identity, being the child of an immigrant, growing up without a father, and using fantasy as a coping mechanism. Owls, jaguars, and cacti also make dream-like and delightful appearances. This original drama is a memory play with heightened language, originating from a poetry book. Written by Christine Stoddard and directed by Fiamma Piacentini.
*Trigger warning: This play references sexual assault and suicide.
Venue: The Tank
312 W. 36th St.
