From the fecund imagination of José Rivera, a writer known for his lush language, open heart and stylistic flirtation iwth the surreal, come four new plays that interweave love and politics. Boleros for the Disenchanted is a story of the playwright's own parents: their falling in love in 1950s Puerto Rico up through more difficult times forty years later in America. In Brainpeople, three desolate women in a postapocalyptic Los Angeles feast on a slaughtered tiger. Adoration of the Old Woman centers on a young American woman sent to Puerto Rico during a vote for statehood to stay with her great-grandmother, who is being visited by her dead husband's lover. Pablo and Andrew at the Altar of Words a one-act penned in protest of California's Proposition 8, is an exuberant confession of love between two men.
