Goodman Theatre presents
Written by Tanya Saracho
Directed by Cecil D. Keenan
Based on Chekhov’s “Cherry Orchard,” playwright Tanya Saracho tells the story of a Mexican family’s legacy being disrupted by drug cartels.
A poor carpenter becomes a hired gun for ‘the man on the hill.’ Shifting power and money is changing the roles of the working class and the privileged in modern day Nuevo Leon, Mexico. A mother and daughter return to their ancestral home to find it under attack. Goodman Theatre‘s world premiere of “El Nogalar” (translation: Pecan Orchard) is a threat on homeland security.
