The UTEP Department of Theatre and Dance presents Borderline - A Southwest Premier Ghost Story, written by Mexican-American Playwright and El Paso native, Andrew Siañez-De La O.. This chilling tale follows a pair of story telling siblings and a couple with a secret banning together to escape the dangers of the dark that roam the cotton fields of Socorro, Texas. Along the way they learn more about the tales of their different generations than they ever thought possible. We recommend ages 13+ to join us in this experience of ghosts, myths, and legends.
Zoot Suit by Luis Valdez

November 20, 27 & December 4 @2:30 PM
The UTEP Department of Theatre and Dance presents Zoot Suit, Luis Valdez’s iconic telling of the story of Henry Reyna and the 38th Street Gang through the eerie Sleepy Lagoon Murders, the following trial, and infamous Zoot Suit Riots. This piece featuring high energy song and dance highlights the truths of America in the 1940’s- that remain relevant to this day. Through their fight for identity and freedom, we continue to learn what it means to care for your fellow man.
Content warning: Zoot Suit is a heightened, presentational, theatrical retelling of a historical moment in 1940s America. With its central theme of identity, it's a piece in which a span of anti-Latinx aggressions are made. The piece depicts Latinx marginalization and cultural tensions, as well as abuses of law enforcement, the judicial system, & media coverage, among other sensitive content. The piece requires the use of harsh and racial language/slurs (including a single instance of the N-word), weapons, cigarettes, misogynistic dynamics, homophobic slurs, etc.
Heroes And Saints by Cherrie Moraga
Directed by Adriana Domínguez
Wise Family Theatre
February 24, 25, March 3 & 4 @7:30 PM
February 26 & March 5 @2:30 PM
Cherríe Moraga's Heroes and Saints sets ablaze the struggles endured by the farm worker community from the fictional town of McFarland, California. The fields are riddled with pesticides and toxic waste leading to a high incidence of cancer and birth defects. Heroes and Saints is a searing look at what a community must contend with to earn a meager living in a world where their lives are devalued and minimized. Through elements of surrealism, Moraga reminds us that we are responsible for one another and have no right to demand that others sacrifice for our own comfort. ¡El pueblo unido jamás será vencido!
