Join us for a public reading of a new play! Written by award winning playwright Juan Francisco Villa (Empanada for a Dream) and directed by Jo Cattell, Managing Director of Collaboraction, and Resident Director for the terraNova Collective, DON CHIPOTLE follows two young boys, Celestino and Octavio, who journey across New York City on an epic adventure, encountering dangerous villains, strange creatures, and memorable characters. Drawing on the classic tale Don Quixote and Villa’s own experience growing up in the violent atmosphere of lower East Side Manhattan, DON CHIPOTLE uses puppetry, music, song and dialogue to create a magical adventure about an uninhibited boy who has his childhood taken away. DON CHIPOTLE is being developed by the terraNova Collective in collaboration with the Pivot Arts’ Performing Arts Incubator Project.
Join us Tuesday, March 10 at 7:30pm at Hopleaf! Tickets are $10 at the door.
