FIGHTING SHADOWS is the true story of one mans search for love in a world meant for breaking, not bending. A brutal, truthful account of Emmy-nominated actor Richard Cabrals early life as a notorious gang member in East LA, Fighting Shadows follows his life-affirming transformation out of the shadows of gangs, prison, and violence, and into a new world of family, art, and love. Armed with only his own tremendous will and the good work of Homeboy Industries and Father Greg Boyle, Richards story illustrates the possibilities of marginalized lives to reclaim spirit through poetry, music, and raw storytelling.

Richard Cabral won the coveted Lo Maximo Homeboy Hero Award from Homeboy Industries, which celebrates the gang member who most profoundly transformed his life. Fighting Shadows was originally developed and written with award-winning director and dramaturg Robert Egan at the Ojai Playwrights Conference. This production features performances by musician Rocio Mendoza and original collaborative paintings from Homeboy Industries artists.

A portion of the proceeds will benefit Homeboy Industries.

The opening night post-show cocktail reception is sponsored by Hennessy VSOP Privilege.
