“QUEENS” at the La Jolla Playhouse

Aired on KSDS-FM on 7/13/18 RUN DATES: 7/3/18 - 7/29/18 VENUE:  La Jolla Playhouse One brutal line – among many – stands out in Martyna Majok’s “Queens”: “You’re either the boot or the back.” In the intense drama about immigrant women, a high price is paid by everyone who leaves or is left behind. When you’re in survival mode, choices must be made, whether to be pushed to the bottom rung, or step on others to advance. Skipping back in Read More →

KPBS AIRDATE:  October 06, 2006 White men, black women. When each group gets together for a ritual experience, sparks inevitably fly. The assemblages couldn’t be more different, though you could say ‘trash’ unites them. “Middle-Aged White Guys” features one seriously low-end, trashy family.
