Kita y Fernanda

September 27 – October 21, 2012

By Tanya Saracho
Directed by Seema Sueko & Robert Castro

Kita y Fernanda

Two Mexican girls.
One household.
Two paths.

Written by Tanya Saracho, who critics call, “the Chicana Chekhov,” Kita y Fernanda is the story of two girls who grow up together in an upper-class home in Texas: one a Mexican national living legally in the U.S., and the other the undocumented daughter of the maid. Opening a window into the diversity of the Mexican American community, Kita y Fernanda explores issues of immigration, language and class. *This play contains strong language, and is told in a unique blend of Spanish and English. For questions regarding content please call 619-342-7395.
