References to Salvadore Dalí Make Me Hot
By José Rivera
Directed by Miguel Martinez
References captures a few critical days in the lives of Gabriela, a lonely army wife, and her husband Benito, who has just returned from the field. The small cast and setting belie the play's historical depth, as it comes on the tail of the First Persian Gulf War. To a modern audience, Benito's insistence that the war is over is ironic and his echoes of PTSD are painfully relevant today. Benito and Gabriela also evoke the specific relationship between the Latino communities and the U.S. Army, adding another layer to Rivera's work. Most centrally, however, remains the question of their marriage. Can you live with someone who's lost what you fell in love with? Can you expect someone to stay as what you know when you've changed, too?
June 3-19, 2022.
