The Mexican tells the story of an alleged illegal immigrant shot and killed near the Mexican border and a distracted, intense team of Americans trying to resolve the issue in a heated political climate. Foul-mouthed, funny and controversial, The Mexican looks at border issues from the point of view of a writer trying to tell the story of his brother’s death, and the political climate that fosters racism and ambition, but little humanity. A segment of Tomas Ulises-Soto’s trilogy Mi Hermano Fue Asesinado en America, The Mexican is in English. This play has adult themes and language.
The Mexican features Evan Engle, Maggie Guzman, John Russell, Julio-Cesar Sauceda, Kyra Weinberger and Andrew Wolverton. The play is directed by Michael Fenlason, with original music by Skads Muskie and Anthony Sanchez.
