Resident Playwright of The Asylum Theatre

It’s official. I have become the Resident Playwright of The Asylum Theatre!

This continues our history of international collaborations with The Asylum that includes our recent partnership with the Out of the Wings Festival in the UK for SCHERZO (Dialogue with a Statue) by Rafael Guizado, translated by local artist Gigi Guizado. The success of that production led to the appointment of Gigi Guizado as our new Resident Playwright last March. The Asylum is committed to supporting her work along with other projects that arise from our open submission process.

I am delighted to continue working with the team at The Asylum Theatre to bring international texts to life onstage in Las Vegas. Stay tuned for our upcoming ASYLUM: Reflections on Refuge on June 4th, 2022 and Complemento by Rafael Guizado on September 9-10, 2022 at the Winchester Dondero Cultural Center.
