"Hilarious and deliciously biting, this play brings love, piñatas, and donuts to the fight against injustice, hatred, and oppression in all its flavors (but especially the orange-tinged variety). Writer, performer, and comedian Baruch Porras Hernandez shares stories of his journey as a Queer Latino boy growing up in Toluca, Mexico, and immigrating to California. Using poetry, stand-up comedy, and sweaty go-go dance vibes, Baruch serves up everything from Rainbow Brite realness to Frida Kahlo glitter magic along the way. Love in the Time of Piñatas played to sold-out crowds in San Francisco and this staged reading is a special adaptation for the PCS Remix: Play Reading series. Grab your party hat and get ready to take a bite of this deep-fried, frosted goodness!"
