THE NAFTA PLAY, OR THE INVISIBLE HAND OF GOD TOUCHED ME IN A BAD PLACE

a new play

When mid-level manager Jaime Ramirez gets the promotion of a lifetime, he’s sure moving his family to central Mexico will change their lives for the better. But his plans are turned on their head when he falls for his employee, a woman dead set on changing working conditions and extinguishing American capitalist ideals. Should he fire her and squash her labor rebellion, risking a sexual harassment suit in the process, or should he join the fight against his greedy employers and sacrifice the fortunes they’ve promised him?
