Grandson Miguel is running for state office against a Jewish opponent.  Her daughter is his campaign manager. An unintended slur during the debate nearly destroys his family, but reveals the truth.

Parted Waters reflects the mad pace of change in the twenty-first century and the resulting confusion that is an all-too-common affliction of contemporary life.

Teatro Paraguas will perform a staged reading of the production, followed by a discussion.

Tickets:  On sale at the door.  $5 for the community.  Free for students / military.
