Outside the Circle, new play, Opening in San Antonio

The Esperanza Peace and Justice Center & Jump-Start present 
 Outside The Circle
 A New Play About Love + Society’s Phobias

Outside the Circle, a new play by Andrea Assaf and Samuel Valdez, examines the nature of love, and what happens to love when we internalize society’s phobias.
Outside the Circle, is a new play that brings people together across identities and communities to explore what love is. A straight man with cerebral palsy and a queer woman recount their adventures, and share their woes, of unsuccessful attempts to seduce (straight) women. Their lives on both sides of the border intersect one night, when they meet at a Tijuana bar, and become entwined in each other’s stories. Their parallel and interweaving tales of unrequited love reveal the illusions of normalcy, and the liberation possible when choosing life…outside the circle.
Directed by Dora Arreola
