CASA 0101 Theater is proud to present the 30th anniversary of Simply María or the American Dream, by Josefina López. The one-act play explores the cultural and familial expectations of a young Latina making choices between pursuing college ambitions, getting married, or securing employment. The main character, María, finds herself living in dual cultures – the Mexican ways of her former homeland and the newfound liberty of the USA. The goal of the youth play production is to further the Building Healthy Communities, Boyle Heights “Invest in Youth” Campaign, geared at increasing resources for youth in the city of LA.
Casa makes theater accessible by making theater affordable to you. For this special performance pay what you can (PWYC) week 1 & 2.
