About This Show

Long Island Iced Latina is an intoxicating comedic memoir of her awkward adolescence in Massapequa, Long Island, mixing equal parts cultural confusion, chronic virginity, mother-daughter instability and a splash of polyester fashion to paint a sardonic picture of her uprooted life as the new brown girl in a white high school.

Lydia’s Funeral Video depicts a not so distant future when abortions are legal only within 28 days of conception. Lydia Clark-Lin is doggedly pursuing her career when a mysterious being claiming to be an hours-old embryo invades her dreams, announces that Lydia is both pregnant and dying and commands her to create a video to be screened at her funeral before terminating the pregnancy. A sold-out, full-length production of this play, directed by Wilma Bonet, premiered at the Dark Room in February.
