Short Play


Calabasas Street follows a young boy named Domingo Sanchez who learns the true meaning of friendship when his baseball accidentally drops into the yard of La Vuida Martinez. All the children of the neighborhood are afraid of her. They think she's crazy because she searches through people's garbage and hauls it back to her house. What does she do with it? The mystery is too much for Domingo. He soon discovers La Vuida Martinez is a widow and she isn't crazy. She collects junk and transforms it into art. This chance encounter becomes a lifelong friendship between Domingo and La Vuida Martinez, sharing fun, stories and making Mexican piñatas.
