Not unlike the police, one’s newborn children tend to arrive at the worst possible time -- unless you want them, and then it can be almost impossible to get them to show up.
It’s even more fraught in writer/comedian/educator/activist Monica Palacios’ play Clock, when you’re a couple of Latina lesbians and one of you is in a hurry to use a good egg, the other is still waffling, loved ones offer every variety of advice, and Leti, the Aztec goddess of fertility, steps in.
Back when Palacios wrote the script, people said a show with seven Latina characters would be difficult to cast. In Phoenix’ theater community, that sounds like a ridiculous thing to consider a problem, so Teatro Bravo! is presenting Clock at Helen K. Mason Performing Arts Center, 1333 East Washington Street.
Admission to Thursday, March 13’s 7 p.m. performance is pay-what-you-can, with a minimum $10 donation suggested. The production continues through Sunday, March 16, with prices from $10 to $20. Call 602-402-9954 or visit www.teatrobravo.org.
