tortilla-curtain-sd-repTortilla Curtain 

Through Apr. 8. This humorous and heart breaking world premiere play received an Edgerton Foundation New American Plays award.

One summer day, Delaney, driving up the narrow, twisting canyon road, hits Cándido with his car. The lives of the two men and their families will never be the same. Lyceum Theatre, 79 Horton Plaza, downtown, 619.231.3586. sdrep.org
