Excerpt from a review on “Antigone at the Border” by playwright and MacArthur genius Luis Alfaro:
A co-production between the enduring and stalwart, Borderlands Theatre in Tucson, and Teatro Bravo, the exciting Latina/o/x theatre in Phoenix, we experience the tragic tale of Thebes, which lends itself beautifully to the American Southwest, as we ponder to whom and what belongs this land.
We are at once roaming through the Arizona desert swept up in an epic tale of border life, corrupt cartels and family dynasties, while Pinate uses the ancient Greek text as a launching point into a deeper examination and meditation on our own political strife.
