El Mito, or The Myth of My Pain

By Andrew Rincón

Nancy T. Hansen Theatre

Michelle, a sci-fi and comic book fan, is on the cusp of graduating high school. Her brother, Flaco, and his partner, Freddi; their mother, Diana, and her cousins, Harvey and Chemita, produce and perform in a local-access telenovela, popular around the Miami area. With the death of Michelle’s abuela comes grief—and something more: a sense that something is terribly, terribly, wrong. Michelle must face down demons her mother and abuela tried to leave behind when they immigrated from Colombia—because only she can save them.

Contains sexual situations and strong language.


Thursday, Friday and Saturday performances take place at 7:30pm.

Sunday performances take place at 2:30pm.
