Written by Sara Farrington // Directed by Evan Zes // Performed by Valeria A. Avina
Honduras is a solo piece based on true events, accounts from the Honduran mothers in the NY/NJ area, all who I met volunteering with the group I helped found, Immigrant Families Together. Each mother and child in this story crossed the border seeking asylum in the summer of 2018. All names are changed. Some characters in this play are composites or interpreted versions of people we met, some scenarios are condensed, consolidated and dramatized, but nothing has been exaggerated.
This piece was originally commissioned as part of the All For One Theater Solo Collective Residency, January 2019 and has since had several performances in NYC and regional tours including:
The Michael Chekhov Theater Festival in Ridgefield CT, The Tank NYC, Judson Church, Gnome Haus @ Brown University, Providence, RI (postponed due to Covid-19), The ONE Festival, NYC. To inquire about booking a tour date or run of this powerful piece, please contact me here.
