American Jornalero

West Coast Premiere

April 13–May 6, 2018

by Ed Cardona Jr.

In an empty lot on a New York street corner, six men wait: For coffee. For work. For news. For their luck to change.

One of the season’s site-specific productions, this vital new play places a literal fence line through the center of contemporary dialogue on labor and immigration—and asks whether it’s a divide that can ever be scaled.
