Will Geer’s Theatricum Botanicum presents the world premiere of John Guerra’s tale of two families, a sort of modern day “Our Town” set in Fillmore, the self-proclaimed “Last, Best Small Town in Southern California.” As the first decade of the 21st century unfolds, the children of these neighboring households — one White, one Latine — come of age, fall in love, and suffer loss, as they continually hunt for their place in a world that can no longer promise them a better life than their parents. Theatricum’s outdoor amphitheater is terraced into the Topanga Canyon hillside, so audience members are advised to dress casually (warmly for evenings) and bring cushions for bench seating.
