Always Running

Casa 0101 Theater
2009 E. First St Los Angeles

CASA 0101 Theater and Tía Chucha's Centro Cultural & Bookstore present the World Premiere of Always Running, based on the groundbreaking memoir written by, and adapted for the stage by, Luis J. Rodriguez. A young man escapes his life of gang violence, discrimination, depression, and drug addition through art, the Chicano Movement, poetry and service. Says Luis J. Rodriguez, "My book was about the transformative power of the arts as well as how the Chicano Movement provided me meaning and knowledge to join with the social justice struggles of the day. It dramatizes how a caring, persistent, and guiding mentor eventually gave me the consciousness and tools to own my life instead of turning it over constantly to drugs, crime, and violence."

"...The Chicano Movement was a mostly non-violent social movement that sought equal rights for the Chicano community; it remains an important piece of American history. Always Running juxtaposes the difficulties encountered by the movement with the very personal struggles of Luis J. Rodriguez as a young man. It humanizes the young people who turn to gangs for a sense of inclusion and protection - those youngsters within communities ravaged by poverty, gang violence, drug abuse and police brutality."
