Obsidian Theater is proud to present the Houston premiere of El Nogalar by Tanya Saracho, a rising star in both theatre and television. Performances will run July 28 thru August 20 at Obsidian Theater, 3522 White Oak Drive, Houston, TX 77007. All shows begin at 8 p.m.

Set amid the explosive drug wars in present-day northern Mexico, El Nogalar is the story of the Galvan family's struggle to hold on to their homestead-and their precarious social status. The play shadows the family's housekeeper, Dunia, as she watches the family matriarch Maite and her daughters squander their money and risk losing everything to a local drug cartel. Despite warnings from friends and family, Maite ignores her dwindling fortune as stubbornly as she ignores the sinister capos simmering at her doorstep.

Tanya Saracho grew up in McAllen, Texas but broke into the national theatre scene in Chicago. There she worked with both the Steppenwolf and Goodman theatres and garnered every accolade the city had to offer. While working at the Goodman she was commissioned to write El Nogalar with The Cherry Orchard as inspiration. Saracho has also been awarded a Project Development grant from the National Endowment of the Arts and been named "Revolucionario" by the National Musem of Mexican Art. Leveraging her theatre success, Saracho also writes for both HBO and ABC television. Her credits include The HBO hit Girls, Devious Maids, and How to Get Away with Murder on ABC. She now has her own seires on STARZ called Pour Vida.
