La Colectiva Chorizo y Maguey present with Company of Angels
The World Premiere of

by Virginia Grise
Directed by Laurie Carlos

Set in Barrio, USA, Virginia Grise's blu traces the explosive after-effects of prison and hunger, desire and war. Told in a heightened poetic language of street talk, the play follows a queer Chicana/o family as they try to envision an earth and sky without police and their helicopters. Soledad and her woman Hailstorm raise Blu, Gemini and Lunatico while their father Eme serves a three-strike sentence. Blu seeks a better way, Hailstorm fights for beauty amidst all the hurt and ugly, Eme yearns for his lost love and fam, Lunatico is true to tradition and Gemini dreams dreams for everyone while Soledad tries to hold it all together without having her bruised heart touched or broken, one more time. blu is a tattooed offering to Los Angeles audiences, the gods and the ancestors that might be listening.
