Due to blu’s subject matter and story line, in which a non-traditional family struggles after the death of their eldest son in Iraq, show director, Ryan Whitfield, and The Weekend Theater Board wanted to make this special offer available as a small way of saying Thank You to the men and women of the armed forces who serve and protect us on a daily based. We hope to see you there!
Memory, history, and culture collide with the starlit rooftop dreams of a myth-inspired character as Soledad and her partner, Hailstorm, redefine family on their own terms after the death of their eldest son in Iraq. blu, steeped in poetic realism and contemporary politics, challenges us to try to imagine a time before war. Set in Barrio, USA, Grise’s play traces the explosive after-effects of prison and hunger, desire and war, following a queer Chicana/o family as they try to envision an earth and sky without police and their helicopters. Soledad and her woman Hailstorm raise Blu, Gemini and Lunatico while their father Eme serves a three-strike sentence. Soledad tries to hold it all together without having her bruised heart touched or broken, one more time.
