LA ESQUINITA, USA - Arizona Theatre Company - February 9 - February 26, 2017

By RUBÉN C. GONZÁLEZ

“Land of the free, home of the brave and all kinds of other pedo.” At a bus stop on the 40A Red Line, in language at once poetic and irreverent, one of the Southwest’s premiere Mexican-American writer/performers, Rubén C. González, presents a tour-de-force of interlocking stories: ten characters, on a passage through a once-booming town, now forgotten. The main source of employment, Thompson Tire Factory, has gone overseas, leaving the town’s infrastructure in disarray. Told by the wise, omniscient custodian, Lencho, and experienced through the eyes of 18-year-old Daniel, La Esquinita, USA spins the various tales of real people living real lives – including Skinny Black, Sunshine, Tweeker, and Animal – seeking identity, connection, and peace. Much like John Leguizamo, Anna Deveare Smith, or Danny Hoch, from the famed El Teatro Campesino comes a virtuoso performance of a gorgeous, brave story of love, forgiveness, and ultimate redemption.

Contains mature language and subject matter.
School matinee shows are edited/modified to be suitable for all high school students.
