SONG FOR THE DISAPPEARED
by Tanya Saracho |
Directed by Laurie Woolery
Workshop Production in the Owen Theater
This gripping new drama from playwright Tanya Saracho (El Nogalar) tells the story of a fractured family that comes together when the youngest son mysteriously disappears—presumably at the hands of the narcos that dominate the US/Mexico border. Patriarch Leo Cantú is a successful businessman with a new trophy wife and two adult daughters who haven’t recovered from their mother’s recent death: one, a strong-willed writer who fled to Chicago, the other a fragile shut-away who spends her time playing video games and nursing injured animals back to health. When their carefree (and sometimes careless) younger brother, Javi, disappears the family is forced into their first reunion since their mother’s funeral in search of the baby brother that no one—not the headstrong older daughter nor the larger-than-life father—knows how to find.
