Somewhere Over the Border

Online: 05/04/21 – 05/08/21

Inspired by Reina Quijada’s real life journey from El Salvador to the US and by L. Frank Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, Somewhere Over the Border embraces the factual and the fantastical in its depiction of one young girl’s pursuit of the American dream. As Reina travels north to the Mexican border, she gathers friends, faces down dangers and holds tight to the memory of the little boy she left behind. Set in the 1970s and propelled by Cumbia, Mexican Mariachi Boleros, American Rock and Hip Hop, this new musical is both fable and family history – and a testament to the determination born of love.

This is an online play reading as part of our Digital Season.
This is a play about love.

Underscored by a hip-hop beat.

Love which is actually about growth.

Love that challenges you and helps you better understand who you are.

It’s a new play for those who fondly remember the first few decades of hip-hop culture, who went to roller skating rinks and dubbed cassette tapes in their basement and used to videotape every episode of Yo! MTV Raps.

It’s for those who have ever been inspired by an artist, in any medium, and have felt the world disappear when they watch him or her do what they do best.

It’s for those who remember what it’s like when you’re young and falling in love.

You don’t REALLY know yourself until you identify what or who you love – and what you are willing to do in the pursuit of it.

The Realness is a celebration of exactly that.

Come celebrate with us.

The Realness is a play reading of a work in progress. Please support ATC as we pull back the curtain on the play development process by sharing digital play readings of innovative new works by professional playwrights. Be part of the experience!

A world premiere musical journey with two of the world’s most iconic women at the height of their power.

It is 1993, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg has just joined the United States Supreme Court; the first and only other woman there, Sandra Day O’Connor, is ready to welcome her and get to work. In an intimate, epic three-person new musical built of sweeping songs, urgent conversations about equality, and truly human heroines, we come to know these two iconic justices at the height of their power. Through a third character, Regina, rising through the ranks of the law, we discover how O’Connor and Ginsburg inspire, challenge, and propel the next generation of change-makers and trailblazers in American jurisprudence. Ruth, Sandra and Regina confront each other about equal justice under the law, strategy, civil rights, husbands, kids, dreams, sorrows, and how to set a new course for our country and the world.

It is two years later and the Bennet family gathers at Pemberley to celebrate Christmas together.

Following the 1963 bombing by the Ku Klux Klan at the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama, she rocked the nation with “Four Women,” her tribute in song to the four little girls lost in the tragedy. Infused with traditional hymns along with her own songs and covers, Nina Simone: Four Women imagines a conversation between Simone and three African-American women from various back-grounds and experiences and their fight to overcome second-class status, racism, and the stereotypes that seek to define them.

In a small South African tea shop in 1950, two black men and a white boy joke and dance together, defying the brutalities of apartheid through a personal connection built thru joy.

One of the great plays of our time, twice on Broadway, winner of the Drama Desk and London Evening Standard Awards for Best Play, “Master Harold”…and the Boys reveals the profound personal consequences of oppression. Still timely, still compelling, still profoundly moving.

A power-packed boxing drama. The Royale is not your usual sports play. First of all, it is not really about life in the ring. Second, not a single punch will be thrown, at least not with fists. Set in 1910, deep in the midst of Jim Crow, the story is loosely based on the life of Jack Johnson, the world’s first African-American heavy weight boxing champion. The play explores one man’s struggle while reflecting a much broader one. It is also a play about a brother and his sister – his sister, who as he climbs for glory and respect, remains his greatest adversary and strongest motivation.

Wilkommen! Bienvenue! Welcome!Cliff Bradshaw, an American author working on a novel in Berlin, encounters Sally Bowles, a talented cabaret performer, at the seedy Kit Kat Klub where she sings. When she is fired by the club’s owner, also her jealous boyfriend, she moves in with Cliff and the two fall in love. As the Nazis begin taking control of the German government, the atmosphere of the Kit Kat Klub and the lives of Cliff and Sally begin to change dramatically. At its core, Cabaret is a big, award-winning musical critique of apathy, and a chilling look at totalitarianism.
