GableStage proudly presents the witty dramatic comedy FADE by Tanya Saracho, a story about friendship, opportunity, assumptions, ambition, culture and betrayal. Directed by award-winning Miami-based actor, director and writer Teo Castellanos, FADE runs Aug. 19 – Sept. 18 and is available for streaming from Aug. 24 to Sept. 18.
The story follows the relationship developed between Lucia, a Latina novelist, and Abel, a former marine working as a janitor. Lucia is understandably nervous. It’s day one at her first television writing job. As a Hispanic novelist, she may actually be the “diversity hire” she’s heard whispers about. Uncertain whether she can make a place for herself in cutthroat Hollywood, at least she feels less alone when she meets Abel, the Latino janitor. They form a bond and share stories, but it turns out that what Lucia gains from their friendship is not what Abel expects in this dramatic comedy about class, integrity and culture.
