The Three Elliots

Continuing thru the last weekend in October: 
Santa Fe Playhouse, Ironweed Productions and Teatro Paraguas present:

The Elliot Trilogy, by Quiara Alegria Hudes

Teatro Paraguas, the Santa Fe Playhouse, and Ironweed Productions join forces - and a cast of 17 actors from Santa Fe, Albuquerque, and beyond - to bring Pulitzer Prize-winning Quiara Alegría Hudes' masterful epic, The Elliot Trilogy, to Santa Fe. This powerful trilogy consists of Elliot: a Soldier’s Fugue, Pulitzer Prize winner Water by the Spoonful, and The Happiest Song Plays Last. The plays follow Elliot Ortiz from the battlegrounds of Iraq, to a Subway sandwich shop in his home of Philadelphia, to his roots in Puerto Rico, and back to the Middle East to confront a past that has haunted him since the war. 

The Santa Fe Playhouse is the ticketing agent for all three shows.  HOWEVER, each play is performed at the venue that

is producing the show, as follows:

ELLIOT: A SOLDIER'S FUGUE  Teatro Paraguas Black Box Theatre, 3205 Calle Marie Suite B

WATER BY THE SPOONFUL:  Ironweed Productions,  The Second Space, 3205 Calle Marie  Suite A

THE HAPPIEST SONG PLAYS LAST: The Santa Fe Playhouse, 142 East De Vargas

Thanks, and we'll see you at the theatres!
