When Lucia, a Mexican born novelist, gets her first tv writing job she feels a bit out of place on the white male dominated set. Lucia quickly becomes friends with the only other Latino around, a janitor named Abel. As Abel shares his stories with Lucia, similar plots begin to find their way into the TV scripts that Lucia writes. Fade is a play about class and race within the Latino community as well as at large, and how status does not change who you are at your core.
