Our Lady of the Tortilla
by St. Mary's University
Oct. 27 - Nov. 04, 2016
In one wild weekend, an Hispanic American family threatens to burst at the seams. The college-aged son brings home his WASPy girlfriend; his flamboyant mother goes off in mad pursuit of her straying husband, and the old aunt sees the face of the Virgin in a tortilla—turning their New Jersey home into a suburban Lourdes.
"…There is nothing more hilarious than the sound of two cultures clashing in an American living room…the play piles ethnolinguistic puns on top of sight gags and camp lust so ecstatically you'd think you were back in TV's golden age." —Village Voice.
"For all its farcical cleverness, this affectionate spoof…also manages to make some very sweet and serious points about the 'miracle of family love.' " —NY Post.
"…revelations that dazzle and tickle at the same time." —NY Times.
Originally produced by INTAR Hispanic American Arts Center in New York City in 1987.
OUR LADY OF THE TORTILLA is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.
