Guapa (2012)

Play script (Spanish)

In a small Texas town long fractured by class struggle and racism, a single mother named Roly works to give her makeshift family a shot at their dreams.  Together they adopt a young woman named Guapa (“beautiful”), who wants nothing more than to play women’s soccer.  With her hallmark lyricism and political commitment, Svich has written a border-fantasy filled with magical sports dreams, graffiti, birds in flight, indigenous history, trauma, recovery, and the possibility of a better life.
