El Nogalar
by Texas State University

Sep. 28 - Oct. 03


Set amid the explosive drug wars in present-day Northern Mexico, El Nogalar is the story of the Galvin family's struggle to hold on to their homestead—and their precarious social status—before it slips away. The play shadows the family's housekeeper, Dunia, as she watches the family matriarch Maite and her daughters squander their money and risk losing everything to a local drug cartel. Despite warnings from friends and family, Maite ignores her dwindling fortune as stubbornly as she ignores the sinister capos simmering at her doorstep. 

This poignant and moving story from playwright Tanya Saracho, dubbed "a major playwriting talent" by the Chicago Tribune, explores the choice between adapting to the changing world—or getting left behind

Directed by Anna Skidis Vargas
