LA ELOTERA

by Resident Playwright Ricardo Gamboa

Director: Azar Kazemi

Ines is an aging, out-of-work actress turned elotera. Ines is almost indistinguishable from the hundreds of other Mexican vendors selling corn or elotes from their pushcarts. Except her cart houses an arsenal of weapons for Ines's other side hustle as a female assassin. But Ines's career as a cold-blooded killing machine will be complicated when she is tasked with assassinating Vivi, a trans activist holding it down for immigrant rights. Ines will find herself breaching her contract as she tries to keep her and Vivi alive and find out who put a hit on her before they catch up to both of them.


About the Saturday Series

Every Saturday afternoon at 2:00 PM (except for holiday weekends), Chicago Dramatists hosts a Saturday Series event in our theatre. Most Saturday Series events are public readings of plays-in-progress.

All plays read in the Saturday Series are directed, rehearsed, and presented with minimal staging. After each reading, the audience members are invited to fill out written response sheets and to join in a moderated post-reading discussion.

We hope you will join us for this Saturday Series event!
