In present day Los Angeles, Esmeralda, feisty with a capital "F" and frustrated, desperately wants out of her secretarial job. The escape act begins when Sam, a shy, literary accountant, asks her out. Amidst the poetry of Latin American and Spanish romantics and, well, mathematical equations, a comedic "marriage of the minds" ensues catapulting them out of their work-a-day lives and into an unforgettable lesson in how to love. Earthquake Chica is written by Anne Garcia-Romero and directed by Leah Gardner. Part of the Summer Play Festival.
