2015 - 2016 Season

Prospect

by Octavio Solis

In this acclaimed early play by renowned writer Octavio Solis (Se Llama Cristina at INTAR; Pulitzer Prize nominated Lydia at Mark Taper Forum), Scout, a computer programmer with promise of upward mobility, attracts the interest of Liza and Vince, foolhardy opportunists in a complicated relationship. Vince drags the trio home where his wife Elena remains homebound smoking pot, watching porn, and craving snow peas. A drink and drug-fueled night between unlikely friends scrapes down desires, secrets, and identities to the bone.

Prospect received its West Coast Premiere at El Teatro Campesino in 1993. It has received subsequent productions at the Latino Chicago Theatre Company, The Magic Theatre in San Francisco, and the North Coast Repertory Theatre in Solana Beach, CA. This will be the play’s first time on the East Coast.

El Barrio RAÍCES Summer Camp

El Barrio Raíces Summer Program is a four-week program offering theatre arts training to children aged 7 to 10. In 2015, twenty-five participants had the opportunity to learn about several theatre disciplines in our program including acting, dance, makeup, ensemble work, costuming and set building. All classes were facilitated by our bilingual team of teaching artists from the NYC theatre scene, as well as invited artists from abroad. El Barrio Raíces Summer Program provided participants with an atmosphere where they strived, learned and developed their creativity through collaborative work while cultivating new friendships and relationships. The program concluded with a final presentation for parents and community members at La Marqueta, located in the heart of El Barrio.

Our staff will consist of members of our community as well as respected professionals from other boroughs as well as invited artists from Puerto Rico. Each professional artist will bring their own experience and rich background to the Raíces Camp.

a.This program was founded thanks to the initiative and support of La Marqueta Retoña and the Office of House Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito.
