MOTHER ROAD
by Octavio Solis
Directed by Bill Rauch
World Premiere
First rehearsal: 1/15/19
Opens: 3/10/19 
Closes:10/26/19 
All roles will be understudied.
This play is inspired by John Steinbeck’s The Grapes of Wrath and finds hardworking and hard-living William Joad with no blood kin to pass the family farm down to. No one, that is, until a private detective uncovers an unexpected relation: Martín Jodes—a young Mexican-American man descended from Steinbeck’s protagonist Tom Joad. The two men meet up at the site of the former government work camp that once housed to Steinbeck’s Joads and is now home to migrant workers like Martín’s mother, who lived and died laboring in the fields. Together they travel from California back to Oklahoma, reversing the Joads’ mythic journey in an epic story about land, family and survival.
MOTHER ROAD and THE COMEDY OF ERRORS will share the same nine actors, three women and six men. These doublings below are likely, but may change. Since THE COMEDY OF ERRORS will be a bilingual production, all cast members may have Spanish text at some point, but Spanish fluency is not essential for all cast members.

Directed by Shana Cooper 
American Revolutions
First rehearsal: 5/7/19 
Opens: 7/7/19
Closes:10/26/19

Indecent is a love story and a celebration of the Yiddish language, literature and the way art can change lives. It’s also a glimpse at Jewish American history in the first half of the 20th century and an examination of what is “Jewish” and what is “American”—all inspired by the real-life controversy
