“Trío Los Machos,” written by Josefina López, follows the journey of three men who come to the U.S. to work in the fields and eventually make a living playing the music they love. The play is a love letter to Latino men and, an homage to Lopez’s father. The play explores the themes of music, aging and male camaraderie set against the backdrop of the Bracero guest worker program (1942 – 1964) between the United States and Mexico. Narrated to the music of Trío Los Panchos, the story covers a chapter of U.S. history seldomly talked about, as the three friends navigate work, friendship, love as their loyalty to one another becomes tested time and again. The play explores the 50-year friendship of its central characters, Lalo, Nacho and Paco.
