Borderlands Theater- 29th Season

Borderlands Theater proudly announces its 29th Season with three exceptional productions- two of them World Premieres and one performed alternately in English and Spanish- that explore the bonds of love, solidarity and memory between individuals, their families and their communities.

 WORLD PREMIERE

THEY CALL ME A HERO

by Guillermo Reyes

Based on A Memoir by Daniel Hernandez

Directed by Barclay Goldsmith

 A shooting rampage in Tucson creates international headlines as Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords becomes one of the victims. Daniel Hernandez, a young intern, comes to her aid, and helps save her life. This unexpected hero is thrown into a whirl-wind of publicity. As his private life becomes public, Daniel’s family provides the backbone that empowers him.  Daniel’s story highlights the life affirming values that help  our community  commemorate, reflect and heal.
