The HCC Players Present: Living Out, a play by Lisa Loomer

The HCC Players will present Living Out, a play by Lisa Loomer, on April 24, 25 and 26th, at 7:30 p.m., with a matinee performance on Saturday, April 26th, at 2 p.m. All performances will be held in the Leslie Phillips Theater, in HCC's Fine and Performing Arts building.

The Friday, April 25, performance will be sign language intrepreted.

The play, directed by HCC theater professor Patricia Sandoval, is set in present day Los Angeles. It tells the story of a complicated relationship between Ana, a Salvadorian nanny, and the lawyer she works for. Both women are smart, hard-working mothers. Both want better lives for their children. The play explores the shared humanity between them -- and the differences wrought by race, class and Ana's illegal status.

The play remains both funny and tragic as it looks at the prejudices and misconceptions between different cultures.
