Brava! for Women in the Arts presents the theatrical world premiere of «The Mathematics of Love»

Written by Cherríe Moraga
with Ricardo A. Bracho
Directed by the Playwright

August 10-27, 2017

«The Mathematics of Love» takes place in the lobby of the Los Angeles Biltmore Hotel at the turn into the 21st century. Peaches, an aging, mid-staged Alzheimers, Mexican woman and her Anglo husband Poppa, are awaiting the arrival of their out-of-town son, “God.” Enter the 16th century Native female slave-turned-slaveholder, Malinche, wearing red lipstick and sunglasses with“a small pyramid of Louis Vuitton luggage” trailing behind her. Her satirical presence digs up the dirt of a once Tongva landscape, the nagging disquiet of those “Old San Gabriel Mission Days,” and an unreconciled story between mother and daughter. In Peaches’ time-traveling re-encounter with Malinche, she is forced to concede a radically revised ledger on her life; its loves and losses — the sum of a 500-year-old rupture in América.

«The Mathematics of Love» stars Rose Portillo as Peaches*, George Killingsworth as Poppa*, Veronica Maynez as Malinxe, with Carla Pantoja*, Sarita Ocon*, and Carlos Aguirre.
