Hasta los gorriones dejan su nido
Aguijon Theater presents Hasta los gorriones dejan su nido

By: Ral Dorantes; Dir: Marcela Muoz

IN SPANISH

After its successful world premiere as part of Goodman Theatre's Latino Theatre Festival, Aguijon Theater is set to open the full run of Hasta los gorriones dejan su nido (Even a Sparrow Leaves its Nest) by Chicago-based writer Raul Dorantes, with Marcela Muoz directing a cast made up of Oswaldo Calderon, Alba Guerra, Benjamin Magaa and Rosario Vargas.

Inspired by Tennessee Williams' one-act play The Strangest Kind of Romance, Dorantes illustrates the struggles faced by many immigrants trying to build good lives in a foreign land: racism, loneliness and the fear of being cut off from one's roots. Just as Williams highlights the economic insecurity of the transient laborer in his Depression-era piece, Dorantes explores the harsh challenges facing today's undocumented migrant worker. On a more universal level, the play explores that innate human itch to question one's identity, one's material existence and how that identity is undermined by a system that deems many socially invisible.
