About the play:

Set against the backdrop of El Paso, TX. in the early 1970s, Lydia centers around the Mexican-American Flores family.  The family hires an undocumented immigrant, Lydia, as a maid to help care for their disabled daughter. She develops a special bond with most members of the family and in the process, she exposes dark family secrets that end up unleashing the family's rage and shame. The play uses surprising plot twists and highly poetical language to explore scapegoating, family dynamics and intersected identities. - A Fresno Premiere!
