WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Hansen's Cab, Mark R. Geisser's new drama will premiere at the recently renamed, Jose Quintero Theatre (formerly the Kaufman Theatre). Set in the American Southwest of 1958, the story charts the journey of Jennifer Talavera, a young woman diagnosed with Hansen's disease; more commonly known as leprosy. During that time, American public health policy stated that victims of the disease were to be forcibly transported to the U.S. Public Health Service Hospital in Carville, Louisiana. While stopped en route, Jennifer escapes her guardians and meets a mixed-blood Apache archaeologist. The characters become embroiled by the mystical combination of Apache healing rituals and the battle between science and spiritual belief.
