nancy manocherian's the cell + Liberation Theatre Company presents
C-MORE FESTIVAL 2019
Mission San Rafael
developed by Zac Jaffee, Zahyde Pietri, and Jerry Soto
A couple puts their extra room up on Airbnb and gets a curious occupant who feeds them tall tales of the old west, Kit Carson, and a dilapidated Spanish Mission in San Rafael, CA. While they take in the stories and argue about movies, religion, race, and honor, the ghosts of ancestors are cooking up something mysterious in the boarded up restaurant underneath them.
Since it’s inception in 2016, the C-MORE Festival has provided playwrights and theatre developers of color the opportunity to present work that they are passionate about and create visibility for underrepresented narratives. the cell will continue to present the festival in conjunction with Liberation Theatre Company as a part of their Writing Residency Program.
