Quotes & Highlights

Writer Monica Trasandes is a founding member of Playwrights 6.


Playwrights 6 and Open fist theatre Company are proud to present the world premiere of_ Fernando Richardson’s Treacherous Brain_, which is about a man who, after having brain surgery, begins to passionately proclaim his love for a woman who is not the wife he adores.

The play, written by Monica Trasandes and directed by Andre Barron, asks the question: If your brain allowed you to express, without filters, all of your thoughts and desires, what secrets would be revealed, even to you? In a humorous way, it also touches on the longing faced by immigrants, on upper-middle class guilt, and on the particular experiences of couples from different cultures.

The cast includes Roberto Montesinos, Amy Chaffee, Paula Fins, Lyn Michele Ross, Mark Slater and Karla Zamudio.
