Exhibition Performance: Zoot Suit

Thursday, January 24, 6:30 pm, Chiego Lecture Hall


Written by Luis Valdez, Zoot Suit is a fictionalized version of the Sleepy Lagoon murder trial. When a group of Chicano youths were charged with a murder that they did not commit, the Zoot Suit Riots erupted. Directed by Rodney Garza, San Antonio actors Annele Spector and Nicolas Valdez offer excerpts from the play.
