A 1970's Mexican immigrant family is mired in grief, rage, and guilt over a daughter's debilitating accident on the eve of her quinceanera. When the undocumented Lydia arrives in El Paso from Mexico to work as a maid for the family, her nearly miraculous bond with the brain-damaged girl elates, then angers, and finally threatens to destroy the troubled family--and Lydia herself.
A poetic, magical, shocking new play by award-winning Bay Area playwright Octavio Solis, Lydia amazed audiences and drew critical comparisons to O'Neill's Long Day's Journey Into Night and Miller's Death of a Salesman in its premiere at the Denver Center Theatre Company earlier this year. Don't miss the play that critics are calling the newest addition to the canon of great American family epics.
