La Madre Amable (a pesar de ella misma)

Translation: The Kind Mother (in spite of herself)

A comedy about a troupe of BIPOC theatre artists reclaiming their space in classical theatre production. They tell the story of Flor & Mari, innamorato who are in love with one another but are kept apart by a nasty, bitter, House Mother: La Señora Magdalena. La Señora is intent on profiting off of her Daughter's marriage, & with the help of the local witch-doctor match-maker, arranges a marriage between Flor and an extremely wealthy & extremely old man. Human trafficking!? Not if Conchita the housemaid has anything to do with it! This comedy features the classical stock characters, an array of contemporary queer entendre, drag king pandemonium, & a strong love for BIPOC communities surviving white supremacy.
