Five women, representing four generations of an Italian-American family, are forced to deal with a dying patriarch in Daughters, the final production of the Texas A&M University-Kingsville theatre 2009-2010 season.

Performances are scheduled for 7:30 p.m. April 14, 15 and 21, and at 2:30 p.m. April 18 and 22 in the Little Theatre. Tickets are $5.

The play, written by John Morgan Evans, is set against the backdrop of a small, Brooklyn kitchen and uses humor and passion to reveal how one family deals with crisis, family secrets and long-held grudges.

Communications and theatre arts associate professor Patrick Faherty directs the production.

  • Michele Flores, a theatre arts major from Alice, as Tessie
  • Catherine Desiderio, a theatre arts major from Kingsville, as Mom
  • Desiree Putnam, a psychology major from Taft, as Patty Ann
  • Christian Acevedo, a theatre arts major from San Benito, as Grandma
  • Amanda Soto, a theatre arts major from Hackensack, NJ, as Cetta

Aaron Adame, a theatre arts major from Corpus Christi, is serving as the production’s stage manager and Rick Saenz, a theatre arts major from Falfurrias, is serving as the scenic designer.
