so go the ghosts of méxico, part one

By Matthew Paul Olmos

September 14 – October 8, 2016

Directed by Katherine Owens
A Regional Premiere
Opening Night on September 17th

A twenty-two-year-old woman volunteers to replace a murdered police chief in the small border town of Praxedis, México when nobody else is willing to accept the position. so go the ghosts of méxico, part one is the first of a three-play cycle delving into the US/México drug wars. Matthew Paul Olmos has fashioned these events into a poetic, nightmare-land where the dream world and the real world intertwine and the legion of dead from the drug wars return to speak.

“An incredibly moving play that successfully brings the tragedy that has happened so far away…quite literally to the main stage.” ~Exeunt Magazine

“Chilling…persistently haunting…audacious, almost novelistic…” ~The New York Times
