Arroyo contributor and CSU East Bay professor Stephen D. Gutierrez is a winner of the 2010 Maxim Mazumdar New Play Competition in the One-Act category. It will premiere during Alleyway Theatre’s Buffalo Quickies program in Buffalo, New York, March 2011.
This is the fifth play for Gutierrez, who holds an MFA from Cornell University. His first four plays have been produced in the San Francisco Bay Area. Gutierrez wrote this politically incorrect play, dealing with illegal immigration and erupting hostilities, a couple of years ago. The story revolves around two men venting their anguish—with the help of considerable liquor consumption—about illegal immigration and the consequences that erupt when a Mexican ice cream vendor makes a surprise appearance.
