INTERSECTIONS Programming for Guadalupe in the Guest Room at WaterTower Theatre

In the spirit of WaterTower Theatre’s mission to build community through fostering empathy and dialogue, WaterTower announced its new community engagement programming, aptly titled INTERSECTIONS. This programming is constantly exploring where their artistic work intersects with our larger community. INTERSECTIONS has two primary objectives:  The first is focused on providing their audience members a deeper look into the artistic work on their stages, offering more context and making their work even more relevant in the lives of  their audience.

Guadalupe is living in the guest room of her son-in-law, Steve, while she works to translate from English to Spanish the children’s books her deceased daughter has written. Overcome with grief and separated by a language barrier, the unlikely housemates struggle to communicate. As they begin watching the same television show, the two bond in the most unexpected of ways, leading Guadalupe and Steve to learn that understanding doesn’t always require speaking the same language. Guadalupe in the Guest Room is a funny and heartfelt celebration of new beginnings, breaking barriers, and the healing power of telenovelas.
