LAByrinth Theater Company
A Developmental Production
Written by and featuring CARLO ALBAN
Directed by DAVID ANZUELO
Novelist, sniper, television personality, delinquent youth. Window washer, tourist, Beelzebub, idealist youth. Vigilante, rock star wannabe, minuteman, apolitical youth. Illegal immigrant. These are the people in your neighborhood. Carlo Alban will inhabit them all, taking the stage in this solo piece.
At the heart of the play is the story of Carlo's family and their move from Ecuador to the United States when Carlo was seven - leaving behind four of his older siblings - and their subsequent economic, legal and social battles. Interspersed are performances of 1960s Latin American protest songs, which speak of the political struggles and the hope for social change that have inspired artists around the world for decades.
