Famed writer-performer Luis Alfaro (Electricidad, Oedipus el Rey) stars in St. Jude, his solo show that follows him to the bedside of his ailing father. There in California's Central Valley, he reflects on his upbringing -- helped along by a retro slide show. A respected director, author, activist and winner of a prestigious MacArthur Fellowship, Alfaro recalls his youth picking grapes, interacting with family and running away at age 16. Those memories and images, both dark and light, prompt a series of surprising revelations for the artist. Experience St. Jude at the Richard Christiansen Theater in Chicago.
