Teatro Paraguas presents Coyote Acid, a one-act play by Santa Fe based poet John Macker, followed by a poetry reading, January 21-23, 2022. Coyote Acid, directed by Argos MacCallum, takes place on a bleak homestead somewhere in southeastern New Mexico. Luke (Peter Chapman) is fresh out of jail and has come home to ask his mother Esther (Jennifer Graves) where the bank robbery money is buried. She is the only one who might know, since younger brother Timmy and Pa both died in prison. But Ma is a little vague on the issue and might even be suffering from dementia. What begins as a contest of wills transforms into an acceptance and reconciliation rooted in the deep wells of familial love. Rounding out the evening is a reading by actors of Out of The Light: Poems from Prison, a collection of poems chosen by John Macker by renowned poets from around the world written from or about prison. Tickets are $15 general admission, $10 student. Dates and showtimes are Friday and Saturday, 7:30 p.m., and Sunday, 2 p.m. For more information, visit the website, or call 505-424-1601.
