Episode 7 - A Conversation with Mariana Carreño King & Julissa Contreras
INTAR Presents A Conversation with Mariana Carreño King & Julissa Contreras. On March 21st we sat down with our 2023 season playwrights, Mariana Carreño King and Julissa Contreras, to talk in depth about their plays (Truckers and Vámanos), their careers, and more!  About the plays: VÁMONOSby Julissa Contrerasdirected by Tatyana-Marie CarloApril 22nd to May 21st The Torres family of the Bronx are gathering at Juana’s apartment to celebrate the christening of her grandson, Christopher. It’s November 2002 and a year after 9/11, this hilarious, fun, close-knit Dominican family is navigating a new reality that challenges their sense of security— is America waging war in Iraq? When it’s time to party, the Torres’ still deliver – there’s definitely too much food, adults harangue their kids a little, cousins gossip and argue – and yet the comforts of home fall short. Something is up. This World Premiere of Julissa Contreras’ new play features bilingual dialogue meticulously woven to show the beauty, humor, and uncertainty of a life in this time, place, and comunidad. TRUCKERS by Mariana Carreño King Directed by Alfredo Narciso Feb 25th – March 26th Mayor, Lollipop, and Freckles don’t know when they’ll leave this truck stop with their unusual cargo, or where they’ll be directed to take it next, but what they DO know is that things are really starting to get weird tonight. Between unexpected guests, a strange rest stop clerk, and otherworldly energies, the less questions they ask the better. Right? Mariana Carreño’s darkly humorous new play expertly places madcap characters in a situation more bizarre than them in this World Premiere.
