[theatre] PUEBLO REVOLT // Berkeley and San Rafael
The play centers itself on the whole human experience — love, hardship, humor and an exploration of gender identity — of two brothers during the Pueblo Revolt in the 1680s.
A gay Pueblo teen prepares for the Uprising with his older brother, while dealing with a really pesky (and totally inconvenient) crush on the Spanish baker’s son.
When history is in the making, what do ordinary people do?
Don’t miss this hilarious and poignant comedy by Dillon Chitto that Sam Hurwitt calls, “a playful twist on forgotten history!”
A Rolling World Premiere!
Dates: Thursday – Sunday.
February 16 – 26, 2023

San Rafael, CA.
