"Sailor," a story of love, death, and immigration. At its core, "Sailor," is a love story between Sofi, an Italian writer in her late 30s trying to find a publisher for her novel, and Juan, a young Mexican ex-gangster-turned-dishwasher. They meet in the kitchen of a New York City restaurant and, as they each chase their own particular American dream, their worlds collide. The writing process of Sailor began by collecting immigrants' stories from bustling restaurant kitchens in Harlem. Seeing as the themes of immigration, power abuse, and the artist’s struggle against the pressure to conform are central to the Sailor theatre collective, these sparse kitchen-collected notes served as fuel and inspiration for the fictional tale of Sailor. LULAC, the oldest Latino Civil Rights organization in the U.S. and whose mission is to fight discrimination based on race, ethnicity, or national origin directed toward the Latino community, presents the play Sailor.  The play will be part of the 10th edition of the Dream Up Festival held in New York at the iconic Theater of The New City (Johnson Theater).
