The National Pastime is proud to present the midwest premiere of the Pulitzer Prize nominated "Lydia" by Octavio Solis.
Set in the 1970s on the Texas border separating the United States and Mexico, Lydia is an intense, lyrical, and magical play. The first generation Mexican/American Flores family welcomes Lydia, an undocumented maid, into their El Paso home to care for their daughter Ceci. Ceci was disabled in a car accident on the eve of her quinceanera, her fifteenth birthday. Lydia's immediate and seemingly miraculous bond with the girl sets the entire family on a mysterious and shocking journey of discovery. Lydia engages a number of taboo subjects hidden just below the layers of family, social and political standards.
This show is sure to transport you from the normalcy of life and open your mind to new experiences and previously forbidden thoughts.
