About show!

Join us for a three night run of Prieto. Comedic, autobiographical, one-man show written and performed by nationally acclaimed poet, Yosimar Reyes.

This new comedy chronicles the journey of a young queer and undocumented immigrant growing up in the hoods of East Side San Jose.

This show aims to humanize and uplift the stories of undocumented immigrants in a time of heightened anti-immigrant sentiments under the Trump Administration.

Performances will occur inside MACLA’s Castellano Playhouse theatre!
