The Migrant Farmworker’s Son

October 4-7, 2018

Henry, is the son of migrant farmworkers who live in a small town, has been encouraged by his mother to assimilate— become American.

His father feels isolated from his son by the boy’s lack of Spanish (and his own lack of English), a frustration which occasionally finds physical expression. Throughout the play, blue Mexican peasants and fantastical images are used in Felini-like tones to express the migrant life and Henry’s frustrations with his duel existence. Henry’s friend, Oliverio, an old farmworker, recites poetry to him in the fields under the stars. Embedded in the poems are messages for Henry, to help him understand his father. After a confrontation between father and son, Henry learns of his father’s secret pain, the family begins to heal.
