KING OF THE DESERT
Brought to you by CoActive Content, Rene Rivera’s masterfully acted one man show, explores the way our cultural identity often informs our personal view of ourselves and in turn affects our children. Written by Agape Member Stacey Martino, the play strives to present accurate Mexican American history that is often overlooked as seen through the eyes of one ordinary man surmounting extraordinary struggles. During a time in which immigration issues and stereotypical images of Latinos are still prevalent in society today, this play focuses on a forgotten story, a true account of a Mexican American experience, as seen through the eyes of one ordinary man on his journey of self-discovery.
Loved and highly recommended by Rickie Byars Beckwith, this Ovation Recommended play with over 20 Critic’s Picks is being gifted to our community for a contribution of only $10.
Friday May 31st, at 8pm. Purchase online or at the Artists’ Corner.
Bring your friends, bring a date, bring anyone! Meet Rene, the actor, afterwards at The Peace Cafe.
“WOW! Amazing, touching, heart-wrenching, funny, gut-wrenching, purely written & acted, so authentic & I could go on & on… BRILLIANTLY written & acted! What a team!! This is an idea whose time has come – it is contributing to the world & will make the world a better place in ways we know not of, but the Infinite surely does!!” -Reverend Pam Mcgregor
