NNPN Rolling World Premiere of The Mermaid Hour- For Pilar and Bird, navigating their tween daughter Violet’s transition is tricky as they juggle not only their own opposing parenting styles but her impulsive nature. Vi is just as concerned about her best friend Jacob, who she wishes was her boyfriend, and when nothing is going as she wants, she makes a YouTube video that pushes everyone’s buttons. As her parents wrestle with all of Vi's choices, they confront the gaps between them as a couple--and which they'll have to overcome to see them all through.

The Mermaid Hour will be produced at Borderlands Theater as a part of a National New Play Network Rolling World Premiere. Other partnering theaters are Miracle Theater Group  and Actors Theatre of Charlotte.

Barrio Stories in Barrio Anita 

April 20-21, 2018       

Click here to the First Barrio Stories Project

Barrio Stories celebrates and preserves the history and heritage of Tucson’s historic Mexican-American barrios. Using a cross-sector process involving anthropologists, historians, youth, theatre makers, and community, the project is collecting oral histories from elders  from “Barrio Anita” to create a site specific performance. The spectacle based performance will be a walking tour through the barrio where audiences walk through a series of theatrical installations. More information coming soon!
