The UH School of Theatre & Dance presents the world premiere of UH Alum Bernardo Cubría's play, Come & Take It, adapted from Bertolt Brecht’s In The Jungle of Cities and based in present day Houston.

Xoch tries to take back her old neighborhood and family’s land after it has been gentrified. Local mom and pop businesses have been replaced by breweries and high-end boutiques while the character and culture have been erased. Xoch seeks revenge from Garga, a local brewer, first by trying to take his white privilege and then by taking over his life. Garga won’t go so quietly and fights back. Their actions have consequences and their family, friends and city pay for it.

While viewers will select a time and date to view the performance, the video link will be continuously viewable between Friday, March 12 at 8 pm and Sunday, March 14 at 11 pm.
