Tortilla Curtain {@SanDiegoREP Theater}

Date night is important in our home. So when I received the opportunity to go to a performance of Tortilla Curtain at the San Diego Rep I couldn't pass it up. Not only do I love the Lyceum Theater but I also love the fact that it's downtown at Horton Plaza.

Great food, great shops, and wonderful entertainment.

We planned to view an afternoon show since it's easier to get away in the afternoon and afterwards enjoyed an early dinner together alone. The performance was great! Entertaining, thought provoking, and wonderfully put together.

About the Show

In the sun-baked beauty of Topanga Canyon, the lives of three people are on a collision course. Delaney Mossbacher, nature writer and staunch environmentalist, lives a tidy, comfortable existence with his wife and young stepson behind the walls of a gated hilltop community.

They are living the American dream, unquestioning of their absolute right to all that they have.

Cándido Rincón and his sister-in-law América, recently arrived undocumented immigrants from Mexico, live in a ravine at the bottom of the canyon, fighting the elements and tirelessly mowing lawns and cleaning houses while they save for an apartment.

They cling to their vision of the American dream, which manages to elude their grasp at every turn.

One summer day, Delaney, driving up the narrow, twisting canyon road, hits Cándido with his car. The lives of the two men and their families will never be the same.

Playwright Matthew Spangler is the author of the critically-acclaimed stage adaptation of the blockbuster novel The Kite Runner. Now Spangler has fashioned a rip-roaring tale that screams out, “We are all in this together!”

Part satire and part parable, Tortilla Curtain is humorous and heart breaking, a story that speaks passionately to the future of California and the challenges of forming “a more perfect union” in our changing America.

To get a sense of the production, here is an interview with the playwright, Matthew Spangler and the director, Sam Woodhouse.

Dinner & a movie are our normal date night go to activities, but we've bowled, mini-golfed, walked the beach at sunset.

Maybe a play for our next date night?
