A reading of a new play by Jesús I. Valles

Join us for a reading of TESSERACT, or THE TABLE PLAY, a new play by Jesús I. Valles, winner of the Yale Prize, currently touring San Diego with their solo show (un)Documents through our very own D-Tours program.  Jesús’ newest play is a spell against the impulse to narrate sexual assault as an heirloom, a blood curse some families are bound to.


The reading is free and all are welcome.
