By TANYA SARACHO Directed by CHRISTIE VELA
Dec 6, 2017–Jan 7, 2018 Wyly Studio Theatre
When Lucia, a young Mexican born novelist, begins her dream career as a television writer in L.A, she finds herself much more comfortable with the only other Latino around, one of the janitors, than with anyone in the writers’ room. This new comic-drama by Tanya Saracho, a writer for HBO’s Girls and ABC’s How to Get Away with Murder, poses tricky questions about identity and community, as Lucia struggles to bridge the distance between where she came from and where she’s going. Contains profane language, mature themes and sexual humor. Recommended for people High School age and up.

Coming this December to the Wyly Studio Theatre, Fade tells the story of a young Latina novelist who moves out to Hollywood to write for television. However, she finds herself feeling more connected to the office janitor than to any of her fellow writers. Written by Tanya Saracho, herself a television writer (HBO’s Girls and ABC’s How to Get Away with Murder), Fade explores what it means to be a Latina in a predominantly white industry.
