A new solo piece by critically acclaimed writer/performer Rubén C. González.
La Esquinita, USA is the latest installment of the Mad Mexican’s solo performances by Rubén C. González. This time around he is not so mad and the world is better for it. Now, the ZEN Mexican takes us on a passage through a once booming town LA ESQUINITA, USA but now forgotten like so many others. This story is told by the omniscient narrator LENCHO and experienced through the eyes of 18 year old DANIEL, a young man who is at the peek of his Crystal Meth high while standing at the threshold between Light and Darkness. The main source of employment, The Thompson Tire Factory has gone to China leaving the town’s infrastructure in disarray. False idols of hope are the only source of relief and the citizens of this dilapidated town are left scavenging for what little remains. What happens to a town when promises from Big Business are broken? What happens to its people? Meet LENCHO, DANIEL and eight other characters in this story of love, forgiveness and ultimate redemption.
