Casa 0101 Theater and American Latino Theatre Company, in association with CoActive Content, present a new co-production of the Ovation Award Recommended and critically acclaimed play, “The King of the Desert.”
“The King of the Desert” explores the way our cultural identity often informs our personal view of ourselves and in turn affects our children. The play strives to present accurate Mexican American history that is often overlooked as seen through the eyes of one ordinary man surmounting extraordinary struggles.
During a time in which immigration issues and stereotypical images of Latinos are still prevalent in society today, this play focuses on a forgotten story, a true account of a Mexican-American experience.
The co-production will be presented on the main stage of Casa 0101 on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 7 p.m., Jan. 27 through Feb. 12.
Opening night is Jan. 27, at 8 p.m.
Tickets are $20 for general admission; students and seniors are $17. Tickets for groups of six or more are $17. Tickets for Boyle Heights residents with identification are $15.
