Directed by Jerry Ruiz, the cast features Roberta Colindrez, Sandra Marquez, Marta Milans and Ana Nogueira.

“We’re very excited to welcome Tanya Saracho and this amazing company of actresses to Second Stage Uptown,” said Chris Burney, curator of Second Stage Theatre Uptown, in an earlier statement. “Tanya’s work is powerful, unexpected and very contemporary and we are extremely proud to be giving this new American play its world premiere.”

"Liliana has a sparkle few can deny and no one can resist," according to press notes. "The trophy wife of a border magnate living in Texas, she’s seemingly impeccable. But beneath that polished exterior lies a fierce determination to survive at any cost. When Liliana’s true desires break the surface, she’ll have to decide between the value of obligation and the price of freedom."

The production also has scenic design by Raul Abrego, costumes by Carisa Kelly, lighting design by Jennifer Schriever and sound design by Jill BC Du Boff.

The McGinn/Cazale Theatre is located on Broadway at 76th Street. Single tickets are $25 and can be purchased by calling the Second Stage Theatre Box Office at (212) 246-4422 or online at
