"Kita y Fernanda" a play by Tanya Saracho
Written by Tanya Saracho, who critics call, “the Chicana Chekhov,” Kita y Fernanda is the story of two girls who grow up together in an upper-class home in Texas: one a Mexican national living legally in the U.S., and the other the undocumented daughter of the maid. Opening a window into the diversity of the Mexican American community, Kita y Fernanda explores issues of immigration, language and class. *This play contains strong language.
