Both plays were developed as part of the Maria Irene Fornés Hispanic Playwrights-in-Residence Laboratory.
Lucy Loves Me will be the first production of the company's 2013 season. Staged by Lou Moreno, it will begin previews Feb. 22 for a run through March 24.
According to INTAR, "Lucy dreams of not having to deliver pizza, Cookie dreams of a cabaret career, and Milton dreams of bleeding. Lucy delivers a pizza to Milton. Milton randomly calls Cookie. And when Cookie invites him over, Lucy answers the door. Is this a recipe for love?"
Pinkolandia will follow, May 3-26, under the direction of Jose Zayas. Here's how it's billed: "Pinkolandia is a deep, inventive play about finding home in a new place: two young sisters living in Reagan-era Wisconsin create imaginary worlds to make sense of their Chilean parents' exile and troubled marriage. One daughter copes by wrestling with the political and cultural issues she’s hearing about, the other by escaping into a world of pure fantasy."
