Unmerciful Good Fortune

Teatro Main-Stage 2015

by Edwin Sánchez

Poster of Unmerciful Good Fortune

In this play of warped and repressed desires, we follow Maritza, a successful assistant district attorney, through her encounter with Fatima, a mass murderer who can read the life of whoever holds her hand. As Maritza and Fatima’s differences clash, we see a game unfold into a fateful cry for help as Maritza searches for a solution to her mother’s sickness and the disintegration of her home in Fatima’s unyielding demand for Maritza’s hand. Sánchez explores class, race, gender, family, friendship, love in all its forms, personal worth, and the ethics of euthanasia.
