CoActive Content will present the World Premiere of "The King of the Desert (El Rey del Desierto)," a new play by Stacey Martino, to be performed by actor Rene Rivera, under the direction of Valentino Ferreira. Martino, Rivera and Ferreira are all members of the venerable Actors Studio. Playwright Stacey Martino describes "The King of the Desert (El Rey del Desierto)" as one boy's search to find out who he really is in an environment that does not encourage self-expression. He learns to survive by becoming anyone other than himself in times of crisis, from a Mexican Revolutionary poet, to a Mayan Shaman, to a Werewolf. His journey begins in a small Texas barrio and eventually leads to The Julliard School and appearances on Broadway. "My play is an 'against all odds' look at how cultural history and personal mythology which some may think might limit us, can actually set us free instead. The play takes us on a Mexican American journey that explores a universal struggle to become our most authentic selves."
