eSe member Rose Cano received a prestigious grant to develop and produce a play that addresses issues around homelessness and services at the local level. Inspired by the perils and travails of Don Quixote, Cano has adapted the story in present time. As part of the development process, Cano has been going to various service organizations to do readings and get feedback about the authenticity of her text. Her readings have enjoyed much success, but even more important, the readings have brought many more local latino and Spanish-speaking actors into the acting pool. Moreover, Cano’s play reminds us of ese’s mission.
So far Cano has introduced scenes at Consejo Counseling services, Casa Latina and Compass Center.
We will update on Cano’s progress.
