Savage in Limbo, written by John Patrick Shanley, is a dramatic comedy that explores the hopes and dreams of a group of rootless young losers who congregate at an anonymous bar in the Bronx, hoping to find respite from the drabness of their lives.

Olivia Cervantes and Michelle Flores, both freshman theatre arts major from Alice play April and Savage, respectively. The part of Linda is played by Lorraine Rodriguez, a senior theatre and journalism major from Laredo. Sophomore Xavier Garza portrays Tony and Junior James Taylor Maupin is Murk. Both are theatre and history majors from Falfurrias. The stage manager is Cassandra Clarke, a junior theatre arts major from Three Rivers.

Rodriguez and Maupin have previous theatre experience in the A&M-Kingsville performances of Somewhere in Between and Our Lady of the Tortilla. Clarke performed in Steel Magnolias and Tartuffe.

Because of the subject matter and strong language, this play is not suitable for children under 17.
