About the Play

Meet Lucia: she’s a young first-year TV writer originally from Mexico and recently relocated to L.A. Abel is a janitor and the only other Latino Lucia has seen in the office. They may both be inside the same oppressive system but they don’t handle the pressure the same way. As their friendship grows, his ideas blur with hers which leads to unexpected consequences in this witty comedy about class, integrity, and culture.
