Teatro Vivo proudly presents Swimming While Drowning, a play by renowned writer Emilio Rodríguez, presented at the Emma S. Barrientos-Mexican American Cultural Center, directed by Alexis A. Arredondo.

Angelo and Mila are fifteen and homeless. Angelo is a dreamer, and Mila is a streetwise realist. But when they become roommates at a shelter for LGBTQ teens, they build a fragile bond that inspires them to reach for understanding and self-acceptance. Featuring Nelson Contreras Paz and Victor Hugo Jaramillo, this poetic story celebrates the healing power of hope, and the beautiful mystery of being a teenager.
