A Dark Comedy by Tanya Saracho

Teatro Vivo is excited to bring you Enfrascada, a dark comedy by renowned playwright and screenwriter Tanya Saracho, presented at the Emma S. Barrientos-Mexican American Cultural Center under the direction of Claudia M. Chávez.

Alicia is a successful art curator who seems to have her life together. But, when her world is turned upside down, she turns to her friends for support. Together they seek the guidance of wise señoras – and enter the realm of hoodoo, santeria, and curanderismo – to make things how they used to be. With an all-star cast including Karina Domínguez, Emily McDougall, Eva McQuade, Bárbara Mojica, JoJanie Segura Moreno, and Minerva Villa-Rivera, this hilarious and touching comedy about a group of modern-day Latinas explores the magic of friendship.

“This story touches on so many amazing aspects of our culture,” says
Chávez. “It embodies freedom and the sisterhood of women.”
