The new play is described as follows: "You're in Puerto Rico. Old San Juan. You're a tourist, you walk down the stairs of this beautiful old fort built by the Spaniards. When you reach the bottom, you realize you're in a hole. Welcome to ​the basement that lies under the tourism and behind the fort walls. You spend some days there, you don't want to leave. Oh no, you're addicted."

The production will feature scenic design by Clint Ramos, costume design by Dede Ayite, lighting design by Eric Southern, and sound design by Jesse Mandapat.
