Outside the Circle
Outside the Circle. Written by Andrea Assaf and Samuel Valdez. Directed by Dora Arreola. MAY 10, 11, and 12 – 7:30 p.m. $20 gen. $17 stu/sen
Outside the Circle, a new play by Andrea Assaf and Samuel Valdez , examines the nature of love, and what happens to love when we internalize society’s phobias.
In the story a straight man with cerebral palsy and a queer woman recount their adventures, and share their woes, of unrequited love, and unsuccessful attempts to seduce (straight) women.
Their lives on both sides of the border intersect one night when they meet at a Tijuana bar, and become entwined in each other’s stories. Their parallel and interweaving tales reveal the illusions of normalcy, and the liberation possible when choosing life … outside the circle.
