Full Length Play,
When Lucia, a Mexican-born novelist, gets her first TV writing job, she feels a bit out of place on the white male-dominated set. Lucia quickly becomes friends with the only other Latino around, a janitor named Abel. As Abel shares his stories with Lucia, similar plots begin to find their way into the TV scripts that Lucia writes. Fade is a play about class and race within the Latinx community, as well as at large, and how status does not change who you are at your core.
"Saracho’s writing is so sharp, full lives take shape with an economy of words [...] a powerful piece with a fresh voice and a bright future." - Denver Post
“The play is about heritage and status and identity, and particularly about how important those things are in cultures that feel oppressed and misunderstood.” - Hartford Courant
