Directed by Xanthia Walker. Marvin González De León. When Vago’s absent father sends him on a quest to find his inheritance buried in the desert along the U.S./Mexico border, he hopes to find financial stability and leave his failures behind. But his mamá and his ex-girlfriend each feel they deserve the inheritance and follow after him into a haboob. From strange encounters with a drunken gravedigger to getting advice from a talking skeleton, anything is possible in this work of a magical realism, a world premiere by ASU MFA playwright Marvin González De León.
