Palestine, New Mexico premieres

World PremiereRumors, secrets, sand and blood. U.S. Army Captain Catherine Siler journeys to the New Mexico reservation home of Private First Class Raymond Birdsong on a search for answers. The questionable circumstances surrounding Ray’s death in Afghanistan create a crisis of conscience for the captain giving her no choice but to re-examine her own life along the way.

Culture Clash, L.A.’s premiere Chicano performance group, returns with a World Premiere play about America’s constantly shifting political landscape exploring loss, identity and the notion of occupied homelands.

Palestine, New Mexico promises to be an inherently theatrical work that mixes humor and cold fact to unforgettable and galvanizing effect.
