In this sharp, true-to-life new comedy, Mexican-American Lucia is hired to write for a Latina TV character in a cutthroat Hollywood TV studio. She soon discovers that the office custodian, Abel, has a windfall of plot ideas. As their friendship grows, his stories start to blur with hers with unexpected consequences. Fade is a standout new play from Tanya Saracho, whose writing says the Chicago Tribune, “lands in the sweet spot between comedy and drama.”
