TODOS SANTOS - Dolores

New York City, New York

PLAY DESCRIPTION

It has been twenty years since the Santos family was together, and now they have all converged on East L.A. to honor the tenth anniversary of their Papá’s death in the most irreverent ways possible. Their mother, Dolores, is showing signs of age and dementia, and they all must decide how to handle the situation. Along with discovering that Dolores is not actually their mother, the family comes to realize that the chaos and confusion surrounding them is something they’ve taken great pains to create in order to feel alive.

MONOLOGUE DESCRIPTION

Time: Present                                 

Situation: Dolores talks to her dead husband. She explains her difficulty in learning English, reminisces about an old friend determined to improve his language skills, and innocently spouts relief that their son Julio has turned his life around from his dangerous adolescence. Or, has he?

Subject Matter: Family, Widowhood, Language Barriers, Pride, Innocence

Note from Playwright: In a vain, and veiled, attempt to understand my own family and the chaos which we constantly create, I tried to create some order by writing a play about us.

Supplemental Information: To inquire about reading the full script of TODOS SANTOS, contact Alfonso directly at alfieram@gmail.com.
