"EL JARDIN" by Carlos Morton                                               


Please join us for a special event featuring a staged reading of "El Jardin" (The Garden) by Carlos Morton. This is a one-act play that takes us on a journey of discovery and cultural enlightenment. Written in English with some Spanish, Morton uses the creation story to unlock our preconceived notions of cultural identity, the effects of assimilation, and temptation. Following the reading, there will be an open Q&A session with the author Carlos Morton, the cast, and crew! Light refreshments will be provided. There is no charge for this event, however you may make a donation on our website through PayPal.
