LPAC's Rough Draft Festival presents: Saudades, a new play by Fernando Segall and directed by Marina Zurita about Laura (Ana Moioli), a young Brazilian-American woman who embarks on a self-discovery trip to Brazil, searching for her long-lost mother, Luiza (Julia Burnier). Representing nuanced and varied perspectives of Brazilian immigrants in the US, Saudades brings this underrepresented community to the forefront and exposes some of its main emotional struggles – guilt, shame, discrimination, and nostalgia.

This project is affiliated with Et Alia Theater, supported by The Consulate General of Brazil in New York and the Instituto Guimarães Rosa, as well as partially developed as part of LPAC's Rough Draft festival in partnership with The Brick Theater.
