Actor for Guadalupe in the Guest Room

Guadalupe in the Guest Room
By Tony Meneses
Directed by Melissa Lucero McCarl
Show runs: March 23-April 20, 2024

Steve is grieving the death of his wife. His mother-in-law, Guadalupe, has moved into his guest room while she works to translate the children’s books her deceased daughter has written. Both are overcome with grief but struggle to connect. Differences in language and culture keep them separated until they find common ground watching Mexican telenovelas on the T.V. The play is a deeply moving and very funny celebration of life, new beginnings, and the healing power of telenovelas.
