Luis Alfaro

Luis Alfaro: St. Jude

Los Angeles
World Premiere

Presented by Center Theatre Group as part of DouglasPlus

Highway 99 becomes an emotionally charged memory lane for writer/performer Luis Alfaro when his father has a stroke, compelling him to revisit the Central Valley of his childhood. As the family gathers around the ailing patriarch, the artist, activist and MacArthur Fellow (Electricidad, Oedipus el Rey), conjures up memories of his youth (complete with an old-school slide show): from picking grapes to gospel-infused tent revivals, family holidays to running away from home at 16. Directed by Robert Egan, St. Jude is—in Alfaro’s words—“going from ‘what I am’ to ‘who I was.’ ” And it’s a remarkable journey rich with laughter, pathos and surprising revelations.
