"We are all travelers, Brother. Our journeys take place inside." Latino Theater Company, in association with San Francisco's Magic Theatre and resident home company Campo Santo, presents the newest work by MacArthur Foundation "Genius Grant" recipient Luis Alfaro. Humorous and poignant, The Travelers takes place in a monastery alongside Highway 99 in Grangeville, California, population 496 and home to migrant workers. When a stranger stumbles in with a gunshot wound, he is nursed by the brothers of the 936-year-old Carthusian Order - even as the Archdiocese is cutting financial support, casting a shadow. Funny and heartfelt, filled with ritual and absurd touches, The Travelers explores the brothers' struggles against poverty and the complexities of human connection.
