Ring of Red, a Barrio Story

Nov 12–14, 2019 at 6–7pm

Venues Around L.A.

Ring of Red, a Barrio Story

Center Theatre Group partners with local artists, theatre companies, and libraries to present English and Spanish play readings every month.

When a group of Mexican American veterans and their wives gathers to share their life stories, an entire generation comes alive. From the barrios of Los Angeles to the jungles of Vietnam, this unique testimonio-style play connects audiences to the invisible histories within our own communities. Based on the actual oral histories of Chicano Vietnam vets and their families, Ring of Red is a reminder of the enduring sacrifices of war and a powerful testament to the human spirit. Presented in English.

As always, play readings are free, open to the public, and designed to be enjoyed by audiences of all ages.
