SACRAMENTO — In Los Angeles, the African-American Ghetto runs right into the Latino Barrio. Watts, one of the densest populated areas in Southern California rife with crime, meets the Barrio, “East-Los,” where gangs hold turf and the night air rings with sirens.

This is where playwright Leslie David Perry has set his new play entitled, “Learning Spanish.”

“Mr. Perry’s new play is a touching story about how two people of different races and ages try to escape the epidemic of violence that surrounds them,” Producer and Director Ray Tatar said.

As the story unfolds Loretta runs from an abusive husband and finds friendship with Henry, an older unmarried security guard who spends his nights writing letters to newspapers on social issues.

Perry has been an educator, actor, producer, director and writer. Perry began his artistic life in the theater by directing and writing plays in many colleges and universities. He pioneered African-American protest theater, as well as taught at the University of California, Berkeley. Later in life, he became a master storyteller and has been educating and entertaining audiences for more than 30 years.

The play stars Gladys Imperio Acosta, Alejandra Iskow, Alejandra Montezuma, David Perez and Wayne Cook.

“Learning Spanish” runs from Friday, March 1 to Sunday, March 24 at the Wilkerson Theater at the R25 Arts Complex, 1725 25th St. in Sacramento. Show times for the Friday and Saturday shows are 8 p.m., and Sundays at 2 p.m.

Ticket prices are $20 for general admission, $15 for military, students, SARTA members people under 12 years old and seniors. Groups of six or more get special discounts. Free parking available. There is no late seating.
