The remount of the critically-acclaimed Jeff-Nominated 2009 production marks the 5-year anniversary of the Holy sighting under the bridge. The same week that Rome announced a new Pope, a woman driving home from work spotted an image of the Virgin Mary on a discolored wall of the Fullerton Avenue underpass. Inspired by real life interviews, playwright Tanya Saracho renders the voices of those who were drawn to that wall, exploring issues of faith and desire in present day Chicago.
Tanya Saracho returns to 16th Street where her play Kita y Fernanda garnered a Jeff-Nomination for Best New Work. She is the Co-Founder of Teatro Luna, Chicago’s All-Latina Theater Ensemble.
