Surviving centuries of slavery, revolts, and The Trail of Tears, a community of self-proclaimed Freedmen creates the first all-black U.S. town in Wewoka, Oklahoma. The Freedmen (Black Seminoles and people of mixed origins) are rocked when the new religion and the old way come head to head and their former enslavers arrive to return them to the chains of bondage. Written in gorgeously cadenced language, utilizing elements of African American folklore and daring humor, the road weeps, the well runs dry merges the myth, legends and history of the Seminole people.

¡Ser! is a riveting personal narrative that examines a queer Latina’s strained relationship with each of her two homes: Los Angeles, and Buenos Aires. The back and forth migration of her upbringing, amidst major moments in Argentine history, leaves her with few role models save for an over-sexed Argentinian English teacher and a mute that communicates via horn. Using inventive theatrical strategies such as casting James Brown in the role of her abusive father, live music, and her own soccer skills, Karen delights audiences. Watch her remove negative influences from her life to find community and love in pursuit of her ¡GOL!

A gift of love, hope and faith to the City of the Angels.

This beautiful pageant play, with music, dance and a universal message of faith, love and perseverance, appeals to many people, regardless of race, language or religion. Join the tens of thousands who have become transfixed by the story of Juan Diego, a simple peasant from Tepeyac.
