Comedic tragedy with Latino flair plays at CSUS

Explore humanity's dark side at the comedic tragedy Santos & Santos at the Playwrights' Theatre at California State University, Sacramento, March 7 - 17.

Santos & Santos, written by Octavio Solis and directed by CSUS professor Manuel Pickett, is told from a Latino viewpoint with universal appeal. The author, infusing plenty of humor, weaves a tale of a family seduced by American culture.

Based on a true story, the play tracks the rise and fall of an El Paso law firm run by three brothers. It deals with people who overcompensate in their efforts to become more successful, more powerful, more American.

The play follows the Santos family of lawyers as they pursue their out-of-reach goals at all costs - efforts that eventually lead to murder.

In Spanish and English, the author has written scenes inside of scenes, and scenes that go backward in time, bending realism as the play quickly moves from year to year.

Santos & Santos curtain times are at 8 p.m. on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. on Sundays. Tickets are $12 general and $7 for students, seniors and alumni. Tickets are available at the CSUS Ticket Office at (916) 278-4323. Additional media assistance is available at the CSUS public affairs office at (916) 278-6156.
