"Alba hasn’t dated in a long time, so saying she's nervous is an understatement. Not helping: feeling old, language barriers, too much make-up, and a deeper fear her daughters don't want to talk about."

One Perfect Day | Un día perfecto


‘One Perfect Day | Un día perfecto’ is a telenovela-inspired play. Alba and Evan think they’re getting the picture perfect Colombian wedding but when the groom is swapped with an evil twin by a long lost sister bent on revenge, the special day falls into chaos, testing the family’s strength. The play was reimagined as a TikTok telenovela with the help of director Claren Grosz and starring me as… everyone for Aluna Theatre's digital CAMINOS Festival.
