Achieving the 'American dream' has always been a priority for the Rodriguez family. Through vignettes of events we meet Fernando, an adventurous businessman and Marta, the backbone of Fernando’s success. But the more successful the business is growing, the more it would affect their relationship. Tired of being mistreated, Marta decides to take action. Little does she know what will come next for Fernando, not even tequila can cure the mind. Only Marta, better known as ‘abue’ can continue the legacy of the tortilleria and bring out the true meaning of family.
Production Concept Originally, the play was supposed to be performed in Central Falls, Rhode Island this year but due to Covid-19, our staged production is going virtual for the health and safety of the cast and audience. My intention is to produce the play to provide space, opportunity and community for Latinx performers. That mission will continue now virtually! From our very homes to yours!
