THE PLAY

“Structurally innovative and emotionally riGueraPhotoThreeveting, Guera is the nuanced, unflinching story of one young woman’s struggle to survive while growing up with a drug-addicted mother and an overwhelmed, alternately tender and violent father. Drawing on years of supporting herself as a waitress, Tena sets her story in a Mexican restaurant; as the waitress, she banters with the audience, inviting them to choose the evening’s scenes from the menu: from chips and salsa to dessert. Will it be “Mom’s Yard Sale” or “Promises, Promises”? “El Mexicano” or “The Talk”? With each selection, she serves up a vignette from her life, moving seamlessly from engaging hostess to the characters that defined her life.

No matter the combination of choices, the play has an arc, and the audience gets the same story, albeit through different vignettes.

While each performance is different, depending on the scenes selected, every performance is a riveting, emotionally charged experience, celebrating the tenacity and triumph of the human spirit.”
