Main Street Theater, Stages Repertory Theatre, and Mildred’s Umbrella Theater Company, in connection with Sin Muros: A Latinx Theater Festival at Stages, will present Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winner Quiara Alegría Hudes’ Elliot Trilogy. While all are stand-alone plays, they follow the story of Elliot and his mother across the wars in which they served and through their lives as they strive for peace and connection. The trilogy revolves around Elliot Ortiz, a Puerto Rican Marine veteran from Philadelphia.

This will be a reading of the final play in the trilogy. In a barrio kitchen in North Philly, a professor moonlights as the local soup kitchen queen, offering rice and beans to any hungry neighbor. Halfway around the world, her cousin relives his military trauma on a Hollywood film set. With the Egyptian revolution booming in the distance, and local unrest erupting in Philly, these two cousins sing a defiant song of protest. But will Philly, or Egypt, listen?
