Fade by Tanya Saracho 

This Is Our Youth by Kenneth Lonergan

February 14th  - February 18th @ 7:30pm & February 18th @ 2pm

FADEWhen Lucia, a Mexican-born novelist, gets her first TV writing job, she feels out of place on the white male-dominated set. She quickly becomes friends with the only other Latino around, a janitor named Abel. As Abel shares his stories with Lucia, similar plots find their way into the scripts Lucia writes. Fade is a play about class and race within the Latinx community, as well as at large, and how status does not change who you are at your core. 

THIS IS OUR YOUTHWhen Warren steals $15,000 from his abusive father, his drug-dealing friend Dennis helps him put the money to good use. Together, they must traverse the next 48 hours along with Jessica, the young woman Warren yearns for, in this funny, painful, and compassionate story. This Is Our Youth is a living snapshot of three lost souls attempting to navigate adulthood while armed only with the ideas and techniques that guided them as teenagers.
