Ric Salinas of Culture Clash stars in a new comedy set aboard a luxury ocean liner. The decadent Caribbean cruise, sailing obliviously through waters bloodied by the region's dark Colonial history, becomes a metaphor for the fractured political, cultural and sexual identities of its passengers. Directed by Heath Cullens (It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia)

"I wanted to explore the sense of dislocation that so many of us feel in today's society," explains Ceniceroz. "Ramón and James are third and fourth generation Latinos who have lost touch with their heritage. We don't usually see the immigrant experience from that perspective – the assimilated, 'pocho' point of view. But I don't think that a sense of fractured identity is limited to any one demographic. It's a universal issue that everyone can relate to. And it all takes on a new resonance in the age of Trump."

"Jonathan tackles a lot of big issues in this play, like politics and identity, but it's all wrapped up in a very simple story about a father and son," says Cullens. "The reason The Cruise is so effective is because its core is so human, emotional and true. Plus… it's very funny!"
