SANTA FE, N.M. — Raul Garza hopes the title of his one-man play doesn’t deter people who have little interest in Mexican culture.
While “Confessions of a Mexpatriate” features a Texan with Mexican roots ricocheting between corporate America and grass-roots Mexico, the feelings and thoughts in the play are something anyone can identify with, he said.
It’s about feeling you don’t fit in. It’s about plumbing the depths of your own identity. It’s about pushing outside of your comfort zone. It’s about being the new kid on the block.
And while Garza wrote the play and the story sounds a lot like his own, he doesn’t perform it. Actor Mical Trejo, directed by Ken Webster, is the Mexpatriate.
