    The San Patricios
    World Premiere
    by José Cruz González
    Music by Daniel Valdez
    Generously sponsored by
    Patricia M. Troxel Trust
    From the playwright who brought us The Heart's Desire and Invierno comes the world premiere of the poignant and politically charged story of the San Patricio battalion. This strikingly contemporary play with music, packed with the explosive power of true history, opens the past to reveal patriots, traitors, heroes and despots of the war inside the war between Mexico and the United States. In this 1840s political drama, immigrant and native, Catholic and Protestant, officer and enlisted, collide as we rediscover the personal stories submerged in a conflict where Manifest Destiny met Conscientious Objection. This conflict literally shaped the future of both nations, setting the stage for America's coming Civil War and resonating in our world today.
