Institute History

  • 1994 Playwrights Lab


Eddie Sanchez has never been out of New York City until now the summer of 1971 when he takes relics of his dead mother to her sister in Nautla, a tiny village on the Gulf Coast of Mexico where his parents were born. He meets a leper, a lovely girl, his aunt and uncle, a strange itinerant worker and her son, in that order. But there is no order. Nautla is no place for strangers and Eddie isn’t the only stranger. The result is the usual deplorably beautiful mess of love, death, betrayal and ineptitude.


As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
