El Paso native and playwright Christine Granados will premiere her latest play during a booming Latinx theater festival to be held virtually later this month.
Granados’ play, “Inner View,” will make its world premiere during a virtual reading at Stages’ 4th Annual Sin Muros Festival at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 27.
(Editor's note: Due to the weather conditions in East Texas, Stages has postponed its festival to run Feb. 25 - March 7. Granados' reading remains the same)
This season’s Sin Muros: A Latinx Theater Festival is taking place through Feb. 28. The festival weekends will be filled with public events, including play readings, talkbacks and panel discussions.
A former journalist with the El Paso Times, Austin American-Statesman and People Magazine, Granados published her first book, “Brides and Sinners in El Chuco,” in 2006 and followed up with “Fight Like a Man and Other Stories We Tell Our Children” in 2017.
She serves as co-publisher of the Rockdale Reporter and works at the Fredericksburg Standard-Radio Post.
Other featured events include the world premiere of Houston artist Candice D’Meza’s “Fatherland,” a multi-media digital project that explores grief and identity through a daughter who must come to terms with the death of her absent father, organizers said in a press release.
The festival will also showcase four world premiere play readings for development and one to serve as a finalist, including Granados’ play.
Texas playwrights Darrel Holnes, Lily Gonzales and Andrew Siañez-De La O will be among those featured, along with this year’s finalist, Frank Gonzalez, playwright of “Paletas de Coco.”
