The Hispanic/Latino/Latina/Latinx/Latine Vote By Bernardo Cubría
Directed by Bernardo Cubría and Willow Geer

University Professor Paola Aguilar desperately needs money for…well, she’ll tell you. So when THE Political Party offers her a substantial paycheck to help them understand the Hispanic/Latino/Latina/Latinx/Latine Vote, she reluctantly takes the job. Can she help these political strategists understand all of the nuances of her community to save the election? Or will her own journey ultimately be more important than who controls the White House?

Pay What You Will ticket pricing is available at the 7:30 performance on September 16th and October 3rd. A prologue discussion with the cast will take place at 6:30pm before the performance on October 12th. 

A Note From Bernardo Cubría

Four years ago I dealt with my election anxiety by arguing with strangers on Twitter, and frankly, it was a massive waste of my time. So this year I decided that rather than screaming into the internet void, I wanted to do something more positive. So I took the advice of one of my heroes, Garry Shandling, who used to say, “Don’t get mad, get funny,” and I wrote a comedic play instead. This play is about dispelling the ridiculous notion of the Latino monolith, and is also about a woman’s deeply personal journey with IVF. I hope that by juxtaposing something so nuanced with something so two-dimensional, that we are challenging the audience to search for the humanity in all people, especially those they disagree with. My hope is that this play will ask us all to listen more than we lecture, and hopefully make us laugh along the way.
