A defiant celebration of self-discovery, Prieto is an autobiographical coming-of-age story, written and performed by Yosimar Reyes. In a playful performance as his younger self, Reyes takes audiences on a journey through his childhood in East San Jose as he comes to understand the complex intersection of his queerness and his identity as an undocumented American. Against a backdrop of poverty and politics, Reyes navigates topics entrenched in struggle with levity, in search of truth, clarity, and above all, joy.
