Living Large in a Mini Kind of Way, a new work by top Latina artist of the American Theatre Diane Rodriguez, launches a new adventure for Teatro Luna–a firm commitment to producing single-author plays in addition to their trademark devised projects, written by Latina writers outside of their artistic collective. With this World Premiere the Ladies of Luna are not afraid to ask: What would you do if you didn’t have a social security number? How far would you go for 9 precious digits that could change your life?
Chicago’s All-Latina Theatre continues it’s 11th season dedicated to issues of Immigration, Race, and Borders with a story of two sets of Mexican-American sisters; one assimilated into US mainstream culture, the other still struggling with their immigration status. Mingling a sassy comedy with a thought-provoking atypical immigration drama, Obie Award-Winning Rodriguez illuminates pressing, universal issues about identity and privilege. Based on a real-life story, Luna brings it’s unique blend of humor and honesty to this hilarious and sharp exploration of the American Dream.
Living Large in a Mini Kind of Way is presented in English, with a sprinkle of Spanish
