On a co-production with New Perspectives Theatre, we are please to be producing the play How to Melt Ice or (How the Coyote fell in love with the butterfly who tried to be a lizard) by Amalia Oliva Rojas in February 2023. This play tells the story of one family’s journey from Mexico to NYC and their 20-year residency as business owners and community members increasingly under threat of deportation. Playwright Amalia Oliva Rojas weaves together a tapestry of magical realism, Mexican mythology and authentic immigrant experience in a highly stylized framework that explores the demands of familial love and the generational divide between “Dreamers” and those who carried them to the promised land.
When: February 1-11, 2023
