The East Los Angeles College Theatre Department will be presenting “Kindred” in the P-2 building on May 16 to 25 from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m.

The play was written by former faculty member Daniel Kelleher, who is currently working in the industry and directed by Rodney Lloyd Scott.

“Kindred” is a touching chronicle of two inmates who develop a compassionate relationship at an unlikely time. They reveal emotions and who they are throughout the play, with dialogues about life, religion and past experiences.

The cast consists of Mario Valdez as Alan, Clifton Smith as Joey,and Chris Solis.

“Out of all the plays at East Los Angeles College (ELAC), ‘Kindred’ is the play to see,” Lloyd-Scott said.

Tickets will be sold $15 at the door, $10 general admission and $7 for ASU discounts available in P-2 101b.

Tickets will also be available online at elac.edu under Upcoming Events.
