    Rompiendo Barreras

    for houston's diverse latinx theatregoers

    Language is more than just a means of communication; it is a tool for imagination and creativity and a vehicle for entertainment and education. Through Spanish translations, the Latinx community has exposure to local arts and furthers El Zócalo's goal of accessibility and inclusion. It also creates a two-way conversation between communities.

    We are excited to announce the Alley's 2021 Spring digital productions of Medea and El Chuco Town Forever include subtitles in Spanish. 

    These productions are accompanied by a special event, Community Cuentos y Charlas

    Written By: Isaac Gómez

    Janie and Miguel are long-time assistant managers at a big box store in El Paso right by the Zaragoza Bridge to Juárez, Mexico. The memorial service is tonight. It didn’t happen at their store, but it could have. Should they go? Will they go? Written by Texas playwright Isaac Gómez (commissioned author of the upcoming What-a-Christmas! at the Alley).
