Fade by Tanya Saracho

The SHSU Department of Theatre and Musical Theatre invites you to watch Fade by Tanya Saracho which follows Lucia, a Mexican-born novelist, gets when she gets her first TV writing job in a white male-dominated set.

As Abel shares his stories with Lucia, similar plots begin to find their way into the TV scripts that Lucia writes. Fade is a play about class and race within the Latinx community, as well as at large, and how status does not change who you are at your core.
