How to Melt ICE (or How the Coyote Fell in Love with the Butterfly who tried to be a Lizard) 

 A tapestry of magical realism, Mexican mythology and authentic immigrant experience in a highly stylized framework that explores the demands of familial love and the generational divide between “Dreamers” and those who carried them to the promised land. A chorus of three Tías (aunts) share family secrets and neighborhood chisme (gossip) with audience members, who will find themselves sometimes as allies, sometimes as a threat, while the choices of two cousins play out against the backdrop of what is now a decades-long American Tragedy.

Next-Door Neighbors
2015 winner of The Jacob Hammer Memorial Prize for Best Short Play

“ Next Door Neighbors ” is a comical one-act that deals with the ramifications of a Post-Donald Trump world. Calling back to the classic Waiting For Godot, the play follows two seemingly different characters, Manny, the Mexican DREAMer, and Freddy, the gun-loving, border-protecting American as they wait. But exactly are they waiting for? On stage, Manny and Freddy wait side by side for the grand opening of an immigration detention center in Arizona. However, behind every playful quip Manny ricochets on to Freddy ’ s ideas of what it means to be an American, and underneath the raw suspicions Freddy has of Manny, what both characters are really waiting for is empathy. “ Next Door Neighbors ” uncovers the similarities we often ignore when chanting with our picket signs on either side of the immigration debate and urges us to listen to one another while we still can.
