Sangre de un 聲gel (Blood of an Angel)
Originally produced for the Emerson College Studio Series performances and tour premiering March 22, 2008.

Sangre de un Ángel (Blood of an Angel) is a bilingual play, incorporating both Spanish and English.
Drama. By Roxanne Schroeder-Arce.

Cast: 6 to 7 m., 3 to 4w. This dramatic play illustrates how the choices we make can affect our relationships and our lives forever. While broaching issues of immigration, acculturation and identity, it tells the story of a Latino teenager who finds himself involved with a gang, leading him and his family to an unlikely tragic death. Sangre de un Ángel (Blood of an Angel) is inspired by the true story of Adam Chapa, who was shot in his driveway by a teen gang member in East Austin, Texas.

When a mother has had enough of her rebellious teenage son, Ángel, her older son, Juan, and his family offer to take him in. Juan hopes he can guide his brother to make stronger decisions about school and his future. Despite the efforts of a stable home and a loving family, Ángel resists the help, looking to his troubled friends and their gang family for approval. He is lured back to attending school by a caring auto-mechanics teacher who gives him responsibility and the opportunity to rebuild a classic 1957 Chevy. Eventually, Ángel begins to open up to his family and a hopeful future, but trouble follows him home when angry young men come looking for him—with a gun. Production notes are available in the script containing details on set and music. Simple or elaborate set, as desired. Contemporary costumes. Approximate running time: 60 minutes. Music in book.
