A Regional Premiere

by Gabriel Jason Dean

Across the world in Maidan Shar, Harold's adopted daughter teaches The Diary of Anne Frank and finds herself unexpectedly in love. Heartland is a magical new play about family, grace, and the consequences of defending an American Empire.

by Guadalís Del Carmen

Meeting young, at pivotal moments in their lives, Manuel and Johaira fell in love and got married. Although both were raised in the "hood," each had different perspectives on how their experiences affected their choices. Johaira, a smart young lawyer, has always been an independent spirit that gets things done. Manuel, is an entrepreneur on the rise with a mechanic shop that is on the cusp of expansion. Both have ambitions and dreams that they hope to achieve together. Johaira lands a career defining case that rocks her confidence and has her questioning her husband's will to adopt a more feminist way of thinking. But when Manuel's mother falls ill, he has little choice but to care for her, adding more tension to things at home. When tragedy strikes, their love for each other is tested.

Luna tells the story of Soledad whose parents are migrant farm-workers in California. Because her family moves from place to place, Soledad finds it hard to make friends and keep them. The one friend Soledad can rely on is Luna, the moon, because Luna is always present in the night sky for Soledad to talk to and confide in. This story of friendship is one that resonates across cultures and into the deeper humanity which unites us all.
