The Centre Theatre Group's production of Octavio Solis' Lydia, the tale of a Mexican-American teen who is injured and disabled just as she comes of age, begins previews April 2.

Directed by Juliette Carrillo, the production will officially open at the Mark Taper Forum April 15. Performances continue at the California venue through May 17.

The cast comprises Carlo Albán, Max Arciniega, Stephanie Beatriz, Catalina Maynard, Onahoua Rodriguez, Tony Sancho and Daniel Zacapa.

"In the Texas border town of El Paso during the 1970s," read Lydia press notes, "a Mexican American family struggles with the aftermath of an accident that has injured the beloved young daughter, Ceci, and has deeply affected her mother, father and two brothers. Into this environment comes the mysterious Lydia, a sexy, confident young woman who has been hired as a caregiver. Lydia forms an immediate, almost miraculous bond with Ceci and brings new energy into the house, transforming everyone in it, but also unleashing demons that challenge the family even further."

The production features scenic design by Christopher Acebo; costume design by Christal Weatherly; lighting design by Christopher Akerlind; sound design, additional music and string arrangements by David Molina; and original compositions by Chris Webb. The production stage manager is Michelle Blair.
