“The Facilitator” takes place in an elevator where four people must deal with the ambition and morals of the others. Shut in the elevator, they experience a collective desperation that results in the discovery of the true personality of each person when their fears and virtues come out to play in this game of survival. This, of course, causes many conflicts and reveals the eternal truths and contradictions about humans.

A timely story about compromising moral values for the sake of getting rich quick. A Cuban man keeps his promise to bring a friend’s son to the United States. After the young immigrant gets a real taste of hard labor, he decides to accept a job offer as a director of a medical clinic conscious of the job’s dubious nature. He begins to enjoy the benefits of quick earned cash, but his world is turned upside down when he is arrested by the FBI accusing him of Medicaid fraud. After being released on probation, he realizes that he must make a difficult decision, whether to stay in the country and face prosecution or return to his former life in Cuba. Generational, political, and moral differences collide in this modern day drama written and directed by Yoshvani Medina. 
Winning Play of the 2010 Nuestras Voces National Latino Plays Initiative.

La vida en Los Esclavos Unidos > Agosto 4, 5, 25 >  En Repertorio Español. 


Saulo García, author and performer, stated that “this show shares the stories of immigrants that finally understood that it is better to be “scraping by” in the United States than “scraping by” elsewhere; of those that already had their first foreclosure and learned to do those things that were inimaginable in their countries such as: paint the house, clean the roof with a water pressure machine or install a toilet in the bathroom.” 
With outstanding humor, “La vida en los Esclavos Unidos” (Life in the United Slaves’) touches on themes such as the financial crisis, healthcare in the U.S.A., immigrants’ jobs and the lifelong trauma left after the interview for a visa at the U.S. Embassy. The production uses modern video projections to bridge the different episodes and themes. 

En El Tiempo De Las Mariposas > Agosto 18  >>  En Repertorio Español.

“In The Time of the Butterflies” is the story of the courageous Mirabal sisters (Patria, Minerva and María Teresa) from the Dominican Republic. The sisters inspired resistance cells throughout the country against the dictatorial regime of Gen. Rafael Leónidas Trujillo. The ‘butterflies’, their secret code name, were brutally murdered by the regime in 1960.
Based on Julia Álvarez’s popular novel, the martyred butterflies come to vibrant life in a warm, brilliant, and dramatic production by the talented duo – playwright Caridad Svich and director José Zayas– that brought us the critically acclaimed production of Isabel Allende’s “The House of the Spirits” in 2009.
