Siembra, Latino Theatre Season: El Corrido de Jorge
February 1-4 & 8-11, 2018
Jorge, the protagonist of Patricia Crespín’s play (written and performed in English), has big dreams of being a singer. He even writes his own songs. But when his father doesn’t return from a working trip to Mexico, Jorge is forced to put his dreams on hold and help his mother take care of the ranch and raise his younger siblings. When his mother dies from malnutrition, Jorge makes a pact with himself to find his father, whom he is convinced abandoned them, and kill him. He arrives in Mexico, and with the help of a cranky bartender and a determined young Mexican woman, tracks down his father and quickly discovers that some things really are better left alone.
