This bat­tle­field is for ev­ery­one: Rev­o­lu­tion

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

Colonel Fer­nando Reyes, the pro­tag­o­nist of Rev­o­lu­tion, is based on Ame­lio Robles, a trans­gen­der man who be­came a dec­o­rated Za­p­atista of­fi­cer dur­ing the Mex­i­can Rev­o­lu­tion. The play, his­tor­i­cal fic­tion writ­ten by Alix Hud­son and di­rected by Mal­com Mor­gan, takes place be­tween 1910 and 1962 and moves through lo­ca­tions in cen­tral and south­ern Mex­ico, as Reyes takes the op­por­tu­nity of bat­tle to tran­si­tion from fe­male to male.

Rev­o­lu­tion is told in flash­back by Reyes as an old man, played by JoJo Sena de Tarnoff; Cristina Vigil plays Reyes as a young girl. Rev­o­lu­tion opens at Teatro Paraguas Stu­dios (3205 Calle Marie) on Thurs­day, Sept. 29, at 7:30 p.m. Ad­di­tional per­for­mances, Thurs­days to Satur­days at 7:30 p.m. and Sun­days at 3 p.m., run through Oct. 16. Tick­ets are $20, $10 on Thurs­days, and $12 for “lim­ited in­come.” For reser­va­tions, call 505-424-1601 or visit www.brown­pa­pertick­ets.com. — Jen­nifer Levin
