Aug. 09 - Aug. 23 (2022)


When Lucia, a Mexican-born novelist, gets her first TV writing job, she feels a bit out of place on the white male-dominated set. Lucia quickly becomes friends with the only other Latino around, a janitor named Abel. As Abel shares his stories with Lucia, similar plots begin to find their way into the TV scripts that Lucia writes.

Fade is a play about class and race within the Latine community, as well as at large, and how status does not change who you are at your core.
