is a play in two acts. It premiered at The Secret Rose Theatre in North Hollywood, CA in 2008, produced by C.Raul Espinoza and directed by Eddie Padilla. The action unfolds mainly in English, with brief exchanges in Spanish where appropriate.
LOGLINE: Mike thinks he is doing the right thing when he dismisses Rocio as his counseling client. He has developed amorous feelings for her. Then, presto! Her simmering mother issues burst forth in flesh. Synchronistically, so do his. Mike's mentor, a Jesuit, complicates this mash-up with a passion both sacred and profane. Doctor, heal thyself. Priest, pray for thyself. Lover, love thyself.
Alejandra Flores as Otilia, and Shelly Kurtz as Father Godfrey.
Mike Etzrodt as Mike, and Liz Del Sol as Rocio.
