Desert Ensemble Theatre presents the world premiere of Playwright-in-Residence Tony Padilla’s latest drama. This fascinating four-person character study focuses on the reasons people come into our lives, and the often-surprising consequences that result from their interactions.
Directed by Shawn Abramowitz
The irascible Pablo, an aging writer, goes through caretakers at an alarming rate. Enter Aaron, a mysterious young man who gives as good as he gets and the lives of Pablo and his family are set in unexpected new directions.
In 2014, Padilla received the Desert Theatre League's Bill Groves Award for Outstanding Original Writing for his comedy "Becoming Ava." In 2008 his play "Endangered Species" was part of the April 2009 Schegge D’Autore (Theatre Festival) in Rome where it was awarded the festival’s International Award medal.
DETC was named “Best Repertory Company” in the Desert Sun’s “Best of the Valley Awards,” 2018, and “Best Live Theatre, Palm Springs” in Palm Springs Life’s “Best of the Best By City,” 2018 and was awarded 12 Broadway World Awards for its 2016¬–17 season.
