Harvest Moon
Harvest Moon
"Graceful and moving…in its fluid crosscutting of characters and time" —San Francisco Chronicle
By José Cruz González.

Cast: 6m., 4w. (with doubling.) Harvest Moon is a full-length play about Mariluz, a Chicana muralist dying of cancer who paints a mural for her son, telling the story of the farmworkers' struggle for life. As her son uncovers the past, the mural comes alive. An "ancestral agricultural memory," this story chronicles four generations of a Mexican-American farmworker family, celebrating life and art. Harvest Moon premiered at the Seattle Group Theatre. "Graceful and moving…in its fluid crosscutting of characters and time schemes, it creates a vital sense of a family both shaped by and shaping the American experience…Moon is framed as an ancestral agricultural memory. Images of both the bounty and harshness of the harvest fill the play…González works in some witty and theatrical touches" (San Francisco Chronicle). Area staging. Approximate Running Time: 80 minutes.
