"El Borracho"
By Tony Meneses
Directed by Edward Torres

About the play:
Raul is ill. He drinks, because he always drinks, just like el borracho on the lotería card. In his final months, Raul moves in with his ex-wife, who swore she’d never see him again, and their son, who’s longing to connect with his father at last. Developed as part of the Globe’s 2020 Powers New Voices Festival, the world premiere of Tony Meneses’s vibrant dramedy follows one family’s journey to come together so they can finally say goodbye.

Contains strong language.

Open Caption Performance: Saturday, March 12, 2022 at 2 p.m.

"El Borracho" is supported by production sponsors The Joseph Cohen and Martha Farish New Play Development Fund and Univision.
