The Many Deaths of Danny Rosales is a docu-drama based on actual events that transpired in Texas from 1975 to 1977. It deals with the trial of Sheriff Fred Hall who fatally shot Danny Rosales with a sawed off shotgun. Beginning in a courtroom, told through flashbacks, each witness and the defendant relate a different version leading up to Danny’s death. The play will be staged with an ensemble, in the spirit of Bertolt Brecht, and the docu-dramas of the Chicano Theater. Also known as “transformational Theatre” in which the characters go in-and-out of the various flashbacks with minimal sets and props. 

Join us for a discussion panel on The Many Deaths of Danny Rosales on Friday November 9th!
