Very impressed with the cast and screenplay. Have enjoyed Vivia Font and Mike Sears in many local productions and are always happy to see their great talent again. Kinan Valdez was great as were supporting cast. Minimal set worked beautifully...continued

Quotes & Highlights

This play is a recipient of an Edgerton Foundation New American Plays award.


Playwright Matthew Spangler is the author of the critically-acclaimed stage adaptation of the blockbuster novel The Kite Runner. Now Spangler has fashioned a rip-roaring tale that screams out, “We are all in this together!” Part satire and part parable, Tortilla Curtain is humorous and heart breaking, a story that speaks passionately to the future of California and the challenges of forming “a more perfect union” in our changing America.
