Working Theater in a co-production with Queens Theatre in the Park presents the Off-Broadway premiere of Our Dad Is in Atlantis,
a new play by Mexican playwright Javier Malpica
translated by Jorge Ignacio Cortiñas. Debbie Saivetz directs.
Our Dad Is in Atlantis concerns two Mexican brothers, ages 8 and 11, who are left with their grandmother in a rural village while their father goes to the United States to look for work. Motherless, missing their father, and left in the care of relatives they scarcely know, the boys rely on one another for emotional support they are unequipped to provide, and for physical support in a naive and desperate attempt to reach their father in "Atlantis."
