WEEK OF SEPT 5
LA Mission College Theatre is pleased to announce our Fall 2022 production, Blood Wedding, directed by guest professor Christian Barillas. This classic Spanish play is by Federico Garcia Lorca, translated by Langston Hughes. Barillas recently directed Tanya Saracho’s El Nogalar at LA Pierce College. As an actor, he recurred as Ronaldo on Modern Family and has appeared on The Handmaid’s Tale, Grace & Frankie and The Kominsky Method. In theater, he’s worked with major Latinx playwrights Karen Zacarias, Nilo Cruz, Melinda Lopez, Octavio Solis, and with director Melia Bensussen, who adapted the upcoming production of Blood Wedding. We will be seeking actors and production crew in the beginning of the fall semester. No prior theatre experience is necessary.
