By Kara Hartzler,  A play based on fieldwork by Anna Ochoa O'Leary

The National New Play Network Rolling World Premier: Mexico City, Tucson, Chicago.

Winner of the Edgerton Foundation American New Play Award and the NEA Access to Excellence!

In this riveting play -based on actual interviews by Anna Ochoa O'Leary- four women trek the desert towards the American dream. On their way they push the limits of their physical and emotional endurance, and they establish profound yet fragile connections with each other through the magical storytelling of the youngest of them, an indigenous woman from Chiapas.

October 7-24

Zuzi's Theatre

A TUCSON PASTORELACompany developed by Borderlands Theater

Join the shepherds, dog and sheep in their perilous march to Belen to witness the birth of the Baby Jesus. As they pass through the wilds of Arizona they will encounter scary (but whacky) racially- profiling Devils who will snare them with all kinds of gadgets and "laws," and glorious Archangels who will save them at the last minute with flaming swords and beautiful songs.  Sweet Christmas carols sung in English and Spanish accompanied by Gertie and the T.O. Boyz Waila Band! Pinatas for the little ones every show!

December 16-19

By Luis Alfaro

"...a spellbinding dance of pain and eroticism..." -Culture Monster

Supported in part by the University of Arizona College of Humanities

A Chicano recast of Sophocles' masterpiece  by McArthur Foundation Fellow Luis Alfaro. "Oedipus" is set in a California prison and the Pico Union neighborhood in Los Angeles. In Alfaro's reimagining of the Greek tragedy, Oedipus, who's been raised in a prison, is carried by "el destino" to an unavoidable appointment down California's dusty Highway 99  and later into a lonely widow's bed.  Poetic, brutal, and raw, OEDIPUS EL REY is an electrifying and unforgettable myth for the modern age!

February 17 - March 6

Zuzi's Theater

738 North 5th Avenue




By the Latina Dance Project

A new dance drama based on "Los Caprichos" by Spanish painter Francisco de Goya.

Enigmatic and controversial "Los Caprichos" summarized the economic and political crisis of 18th Century Europe. Using humor, song, dance, text and video LDP recasts these powerful images to create a new set of modern day "caprichos" exploring our contemporary demons. 

April 8 - 10

A New play by Martin Zimmerman

Winner of the Smith Award

Would you sacrifice your family for a political career?  In this high stakes  drama set in Tucson and Phoenix,two Latino brothers- one blond and fair skinned, and the other darker  - have each other but not much else in common. The one brother, an attorney and politician, attempts to make a place both for his ideals and his ambitions as he is  threatened by his brother's past history. In the process he is confronted by tough decisions about loyalty to his brother and the status of  his career he has worked so hard to achieve.
