Rodney Reyes' (Fall '16) stageplay WHO AM I runs in the Planet Connections Theatre Festivity

WHO AM I written by Rodney Reyes and directed by Janelle Zapata will run at the Paradise Factory in NYC throughout June as part of the Planet Connections Theatre Festivity. The stageplay is in its fifth production.

WHO AM I takes the viewer into a world where the line between reality and fantasy becomes blurred, peaking into the lives of four distinct stories: A Guy & A Girl who share a secret, A Mother & Daughter looking for the truth, A Comic Book Artist and his character come alive, and a human being having a psychedelic conversation with God (Her)self. Join us as we make discoveries little by little about how all of these strangers are connected to one another, and as we're forced to ask: what's real, anyway?

Eric Campos (GUY)
Randy Cordero (HUMAN)
Jenna DiMartini (GIRL)
Alisha Espinosa (MAY)
Michael Hagins (MARV)
Gladys Hendricks (GOD)
