"Watcha mi tacuche, ese!"
SAC is proud to present the Chicanx epic, ZOOT SUIT. Performed with permission from the historic Teatro Campesino, ZOOT SUIT, written by Luis Valdez, spins a captivating tale of cultural bonds and racial tensions in Los Angeles during World War II. Henry Reyna and his friends and family enter a tangled world of violence and racism when they are blamed for the death of a young man at a party. In the resulting backlash, Henry and twenty-one other 38th Street Gang members are found guilty of the murder and are sent to San Quentin to serve life sentences while Los Angeles erupts into violence. Based on actual and historic events, ZOOT SUIT's poignant ending reminds theater-goers of the importance of fighting discrimination and celebrating the diversity of voices in art.
