The New York premiere stars Marta Milans, Roberta Colindrez, Sandra Marquez and Ana Nogueira. Jerry Ruiz directs the production at the McGinn/Cazale Theatre. Written by Tanya Saracho, the play follows Liliana (Milans), a seemingly impeccable trophy wife of a border magnate living in Texas. But beneath her polished exterior lies a fierce determination to survive at any cost. When her true desires break the surface, she is forced to decide between obligation and the price of freedom.center_img View Commentslast_img
