The Mesquite Tree
by Teatro Audaz

Jun. 30 - Jul. 10, 2022

With a little bit of masa and some leftover meat, a single mother can make enough tamales to feed her family for an entire month; but Blanca wants more for her granddaughter than to be pregnant at fifteen and stuck in a small house in South Texas with five generations of abuelas. Can she change her family’s destiny before there’s another mouth to feed?
