About This Show

From acclaimed playwright and screenwriter Tanya Saracho (Mala Hierba, ABC’s How to Get Away With Murder) comes Fade, a behind-the-scenes comedy about the burgeoning friendship between Lucia and Abel, two Latinos of Mexican descent working at a ruthless Hollywood studio. Lucia is a tenacious novelist, newly hired to write for a TV detective series and struggling to find her place among a team of domineering white male coworkers. Abel is one of the studio’s janitors, sympathetic to Lucia’s difficulties and generous with his opinions and personal anecdotes, which keep the two of them in an absorbing tête-à-tête throughout their workdays. As their bond grows, Abel’s stories blur with those Lucia is writing for the show, and they both find themselves in the center of their own not-quite-made-for-TV drama.

Note: Talkbacks will be held after the performances on Wednesday, February 15; Wednesday, February 22; and Wednesday, March 1.
