Directed by the Latino Theater Company’s Fidel Gomez and written by acclaimed spoken word artist Paul S. Flores, PLACAS (barrio slang for body tattoos) is a bilingual tale of fathers and sons, transformation and redemption that illuminates one man’s determination to reunite his family after surviving civil war in El Salvador, immigration, deportation, prison and street violence. PLACAS stars Ric Salinas, a founding member of the critically acclaimed performance group CULTURE CLASH, as Fausto “Placas” Carbajal, a Salvadoran immigrant who tries to reclaim his family while letting go of his gangbanger past.
