Written and Performed by Luis Alfaro
Award-winning Victory Gardens Theater Playwrights Ensemble member Luis Alfaro (Mojada, Oedipus el Rey) returns to Chicago to perform his emotionally charged solo work. St. Jude takes us on a personal and powerful journey with Luis as he learns of his father’s stroke and is summoned home to the California Central Valley of his childhood. As his family gathers, Alfaro conjures memories of his youth, from picking grapes to gospel-infused big tent revivals, from family celebrations to running away from home. In Alfaro’s words, St. Jude takes us from “who I am” to “who I was.”
Victory Gardens Theater will provide one free ticket to a Chicago Public School student for every ticket purchased to the Up Close and Personal Series.
Alfaro is a marvelously poetic storyteller.”
