About the show

Latinx Theatre Company IATI presents this drama where tragedy befalls a once joyful couple. Now Adriana and Juan Pablo survive by longing and coming to terms with choice, and life’s twist and turns.  More…

Set in their beach house, the matriarch attempts to save her husband from insanity. Meanwhile, he straddles the fine line between delusion and the uncanny; he is trying to seize his last opportunity to speak to their deceased daughter.

Clever, Great staging, Profound, Thought-provoking

See it if you like theatre that is thought-provoking and want to see a simple tridimensional story.

Don't see it if you are into big production. This company is more thought-provoking and intimate productions.

Enchanting, Resonant, Thought-provoking, Slow

See it if You’d like to see a lyrical play in a small setting produced by a Latin x theatre.

Don't see it if You’d like something commercial and more mainstream. At IATI producing plays with the intention of commerciality is not a consideration.

Cliched, Slow

See it if You don’t mind seeing a story you’ve seen before.

Don't see it if You want something fresh and exciting.

Also The acting and lighting were nice, but the play didn’t compel me.

Absorbing, Clever, Exquisite, Indulgent

See it if You want to support a great grassroots theatre.

Don't see it if You’d like a riveting evening of theatre that isn’t overly artsy.

Also Great value!
