First workshop production of a new Latinx comedy by Gabriel Hernández. Drawing on personal experiences, the author’s alter-ego and protagonist visits the local kids’ playground —super cute baby in tow— and ruminates on the ins and outs of parenting, mixed heritage, and invisible difference. Equal parts theater and polemic, Quarter Rican gets funny between urban and suburban, top dog and underdog, Puerto Rican flag and come what may!
Written by Gabriel Hernández. Music by Gabriel Hernández & Gabo Lugo. Directed by Jorge B. Merced.
Quarter Rican is being developed with support from Pregones/Puerto Rican Traveling Theater and its Step Up Artists In Residence initiative, established with a grant from The New York Community Trust.
