MORIR SONYANDO |
The title means to "die dreaming" and is based on the name of a popular Dominican drink---an elixir that does everything from give comfort, evoke childhood memories, and even cure hangovers.
The surface story involved a daughter coming face-to-face with her mother, recently released from prison. But its soul is an exploration of buried pain and a search for connections.
"The play itself is often like a dream, jumping though time and memories with very little linear connection," says playwright Erlina Oritz. "Most people agree the most peaceful way for one to die would be in your sleep, and that concept is considered in the play."

WORLD CLASSIC, Director
Written by: Nelson Diaz-Marcano
“World Classic” is what happens when you take the quintessential American domestic drama away from white suburbia. It explores the identity issues created by assimilation through the eyes of two generations of an immigrant family. Like “The Humans” or “August Osage County” before it, it all takes place during one night, but unlike them, this play focus on those that had to sacrifice their homeland and in the process, compromise their heritage.
