Event Details

Calculating the gains and losses of love, present and past -- the sum of what we can remember.

The first show of the TheatreUSF 2016-17 Season -- The Mathematics of Love opens in the lobby of the Los Angeles Biltmore Hotel at the turn of the 21st century. At the top of the play Peaches, an aging (and mid-staged Alzheimer’s) Mexican woman and her husband sit in the lobby of the hotel, awaiting the arrival of their son who is to throw them an anniversary party. Enter MalinXe, a 16th century Native female, dolled up and trailing designer suitcases, who turns Peaches into her slave girl. Through Peaches’ mind, the play spans five centuries of indigenous memory and geography from Pre-Columbian Mexico City to Mission-era California to contemporary Los Angeles.

Don’t miss the special events surrounding this show with playwright Cherríe Moraga, including a public lecture and book signing on Sept 28, and a post-show discussion with the audience following the Sept 29th performance.

This event will be taking place on Sept 29-Oct 1 at 7:30 PM to 9:30 PM, and on Oct 2, it will be from 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM.

General Admission: $15
