LatinX Theatre Project’s newest play, Arrivals y Salidas will be the centerpiece of the Platform project. This play follows a group of strangers as they make their way to a community celebration of Día De Los Muertos. Stories of identity, hardship, grief and family turn an uncomfortable bus ride into a journey of introspection and acceptance. Audiences will be invited to memorialize their own loved ones and family members while the production is taking place. LXTP hopes this project will help its community celebrate this important holiday in an authentic, multi-generational way.
