Atlantic Theater Company's world-premiere production of Fernanda Coppel's play Chimichangas and Zoloft features Teddy Cañez, Zabryna Guevara, Alfredo Narciso, Xochitl Romero and Carmen Zilles, for a run of May 23-June 24.
Here's how ATC bills the play: "Suffering from a profound sense of disappointment after her 40th birthday, Sonia (played by Zabryna Guevara, of Off-Broadway's Sonia Flew and Elliot, A Soldier's Fugue) flees her family and goes on a binge of prescription Zoloft and greasy chimichangas. Sonia's rebellious daughter Jackie (Zilles) and her best friend Penelope (Romero) hatch a plan to lure Sonia back home, while their fathers (Cañez, Narciso) struggle with a secret association of their own. This irreverent story examines the search for happiness and the mysteries of sexuality through the eyes of two brazen teenagers."
When her father dies unexpectedly, graphic novelist Alison dives deep into her past to tell the story of the volatile, brilliant, one-of-a-kind man whose temperament and secrets defined her family and her life.
