WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
A deep, painful, joyful story about one extended California family with roots in different parts of the world, who make their home on the same plot of Southern California land over 150 years. Los Angeles native and Mexican-American playwright Evangeline Ordaz crafts a rich and complex web of diverse characters from Los Angeles's Latino, African-American, Anglo, and Native American communities who coexist as if time were a wheel that constantly doubles back on itself. Through triumph and despair, these families discover how deeply they are rooted in the dreams of their ancestors and the land on which they stand. Directed by Company of Angels artistic director Armando Molina, This Land debuts at Company of Angels, Los Angeles's oldest professional theater.
