MUD Poster

We are thrilled to present Mud (Barro) by Maria Irene Fornés in The Slate Theatre, formerly the old immigration building (Inscape Arts & Cultural Center.)

Presented in English and Spanish, this translation of Mud (Barro) was produced in Lima, Peru in 1990 with support from the U.S. Embassy. It was the first translation of this play in South America, during the height of the civil war in Peru.

Informed by the current crisis on homelessness in Seattle, this production highlights the precarious situation of 3 individuals who form a family out of sheer necessity, living on the thin edge of survival and the margins of society. May (Maya) works in manual labor and is learning to read. Lloyd (Eloy) is sick and cant afford medicine. Henry (Henri) moves in and shows May the possibility of using her intellect. More than a love triangle, MUD is a survival triangle with no safety net to catch Henry when he falls.

It will be presented in English and Spanish (separate performances) at The Slate Theatre (formerly the old immigration building). This translation of Mud (Barro) was produced in Lima, Peru in 1990 with support from the U.S. Embassy. It was the first translation of this play in South America, during the height of the civil war in Peru.

Featuring an entirely Latino/a cast and creative team, eSe Teatro strives to provide professional opportunities to local Latinx artists by offering unique stories and programming that reflect our broad multicultural community.
