In this witty behind-the-scenes drama, Mexican-born Lucia is hired to write for a ruthless Hollywood TV series. She soon discovers that the Mexican American custodian, Abel, has a windfall of plot ideas. As their friendship grows, his stories start to blur with hers leading to unexpected consequences. Fade, directed by Sandra Marquez, is an acclaimed new play from Tanya Saracho (How to Get Away with Murder, Looking, Girls) whose writing “lands in that sweet spot between comedy and drama” (Chicago Tribune).
In Collaboration with Victory Gardens Theater, Chicago ROAR will host a fundraising event with the production of Fade! on Saturday, December 9 2017.
Your $35 ticket will assist Chicago ROAR in fulfilling its vision of dismantling systemic racism in Chicagoland, but includes a pre-show reception at Victory Gardens theater, the fabulous performance of Fade! and a post-show discussion facilitated by Chicago ROAR.
