Each story was entirely unique, and many of the scenes described were snapshots of lifelong relationships played out as the end of life approached. Learn More

    • Drama | Tragedy

    14 was inspired by the true-life event in May 2001 in which a smuggler abandoned 30 Mexicans crossing the desert, resulting in 14 deaths from dehydration. It is a starting point for exploration to investigate the complexities of people living on the border, not giving answers but raising difficult questions. The mosaic of flawed and struggling people included emphasize the importance of investigating this topic in a way that calls not only for action and conversation but, ultimately, for a collective solution.

I Love to Eat invites you to meet “the face and belly of American gastronomy” in this solo play that imagines a late night in Beard’s home. Learn More
