She said people who welcome immigrants would probably enjoy the sentiment of the play.

"The Viva Frida Festival will celebrate the life and work of Mexican artist - Frida Kahlo with an outdoor event featuring music, food, art, contests and the unveiling of a new Frida mural that will be a permanent part of Plaza Mariachi." Learn more at https://www.facebook.com/events/606851349809067/ I will plan to be there close to the start time though I don't expect to be there all day. Since this is an open, outdoor event, I expect it to be casual where people can come and go as they please. And there's plenty of time make it to the next meetup that evening at the Douglas Corner Cafe.
