When Rosa's father is in a serious automobile accident, she returns to her childhood home. Rosa finds herself in a hospital waiting room, surrounded by the large, judgmental Italian-Canadian Catholic family she fled from just two years prior. As events unfold and start to suffocate her, she turns to the neither real nor imagined, Amante. This almost heavenly man encourages Rosa to tell not only her story but that of her stepmother and grandmother. Espresso packs a flavorful punch as it challenges and explores the religious and cultural norms we often take for granted. See it at Mckaw Theater.
