New Play on Immigration, ‘Angel of the Desert,’ Opens this Weekend at South Coast Rep


Breath of Fire Latina Theater Ensemble Presents ‘Angel of the Desert’ (written by Janine Salinas and directed by Sara Guerrero) as part of South Coast Repertory’s Studio Series!


After civil war wipes out a small village in Mexico, Francisco wakes to discover he is the sole survivor. With the guidance of the moon, he embarks on a treacherous journey through the harsh Mexican desert-attempting what many others before him have done: crossing into the U.S. in search of home. Along the way, he meets two young brothers who know life on the train tracks all too well. Together, these three discover the challenges and true meaning of adventure, family and love. This work of magical realism from L.A. playwright Janine Salinas was read as part of Breath of Fire’s New Works Festival in 2009.
