"Quince" Collaborating Playwrights Camilo Quiroz-Vázquez and Ellpetha Tsivicos,

"Quince" 
Collaborating Playwrights Camilo Quiroz-Vázquez and Ellpetha Tsivicos,
 Scenic Design Tanya Orellana
 at The New Bushwick Starr

MARIA: It wasn’t enough that we were poor, they wanted us to look poor. They wanted us to walk in there with ripped up ponchos and flies over our heads. But mom would never take us anywhere looking like that. Showing up somewhere looking like we had nothing would have been the biggest shame of her life.

Hi Peter,

Here are two quotes, we prefer the first, but if you have room for two, these two really tell our story as creators and help define our aesthetic.

1)
MARIA: It wasn’t enough that we were poor, they wanted us to look poor. They wanted us to walk in there with ripped up ponchos and flies over our heads. But mom would never take us anywhere looking like that. Showing up somewhere looking like we had nothing would have been the biggest shame of her life.

2)
CINDY: I think my grandmother’s last breath took the air out of our family. The lemons fell off the tree she planted and no one had time to pick them up. No one watered her rose bushes, no one took care of the stray dogs and cats she cursed at but always fed and we started locking the front door. My mom didn’t cry, she said we had to be strong and get used to my grandma not being around. But I could still hear her voice whispering the rosary. 


Let us know if you need anything else,
Camilo

On That Day in Amsterdam
Sammy-

I mean, did they know? What they would leave us? These things we got to spend the whole day looking at? The colors as vibrant as they ever were before. Like they left a gift for us. People in the future. People they would never see. For a moment -– for one day -– you can forget all the ugly things in your life. Can you imagine being able to do that for other people? That would be nice, right? To leave something behind. And prove that you were here.

Playwright Zakiyyah Alexander 2007





 Playwright Zakiyyah Alexander, 2007

excerpt from 10 Things to Do Before I Die


VIDA: Hello, it’s me and I am leaving you a message. You know what I hate? What I hate about you? I hate the fact that you drip sweat all over me, it’s disgusting, not sexy. I hate that you say the word fucking while you’re fucking me. I hate it when you go down on me. I lie there and wait while you think you’re actually doing something, then I pretend to come cause I’m worried that I might hurt your feelings. I hate that you don’t call me enough, that you don’t think about me enough, that you don’t love me. And, I hate the way I feel when you walk out the door. I hate you for making me hate me.

What’s next? We decide.

If we lose contact, make contact.

Trust each other.

Oldies broke the earth but there is open space. 

There’s no surveillance in the Outer Plains.

Be your own leaders.

Use the tools at hand.
