A Grave Is Given Supper

Written by Mike Soto
Directed by Claudia Acosta
Starring Elena Hurst
In Partnership with Deep Vellum Publishing

A literary-theatrical event, this Narco-Acid Western is told in a series of interlinked poems. We follow the converging paths of two protagonists through El Sumidero, a fictional US/Mexico border town where an ongoing drug war rages. The surreal verse of Soto’s poems is infused with the rituals of love & loss and builds a world saturated with a mystical aura that explores the desires of those who live in the borderland. Presented in an outdoor cabaret, refreshments, rituals, and a copy of the book of poetry are included. Running time: 45 minutes.
