About This Show

Lydia is the story of a Latino working-class family whose teenage children are first generation Americans. They hire an illegal immigrant nurse/maid, Lydia, to help care for 16 year old Cecilia who suffered permanent brain injury from a car accident. Lydia turns out to be a remarkable young woman who connects with Cecilia and sets out to heal the family of their strained distance from one another, subsequently revealing unexpected secrets. Set in El Paso, this play explores the Texas-Mexican border relations while blending fantasy and reality. The play features all Latino performers and emphasizes the difficulties and dreams of first generation Latinos growing up on the Texas-Mexican border.
