After a successful 2015 in San Francisco and New York, “The Scandal” returns to kick-off the 2016 tour:
Following rave reviews and a successful sell-out run in New York and San Francisco, 3 Lopez Productions brings a new version of the one woman play, “What is the Scandal? – The ignored cry of an Immigrant” performed by Eliana Lopez.
Based in a real life story, this play is about an empowered Latina woman facing the discrimination that in her country she never had to experience; is about our deepest fears and how they manifest into bad situations when we try our best to keep them hidden and it is about the compassion to understand one other and restore hurt relationships.
3 Lopez Productions brings “What is the Scandal?- The Ignored Cry of an Immigrant” out of the need to transform a personal experience into an artistic piece that could be shared in order to open up spaces for dialogue about social and political issues impacting communities of color in the U.S.
Over 2000 people have seen this piece in NY and San Francisco, and the story has been eye-opening for some and cathartic for others. After 34 performances and plenty of feedback, 3 Lopez Productions took the time to work in the evolution of the play rewriting several scenes and cutting out some others, in order to explore the effects of criminalization in a more intimate and personal way. The play highlights contradictions in the support systems that try to help victims but ultimately disempowers them completely and the power we have as individuals to transform, and to own our destiny.
