Lydia, a play set in the 1970s on the Texas border between the United States and Mexico, is a lyrical story of Ceci Flores, disabled by a tragic accident on the eve of her quinceañera (her fifteenth birthday).

Ceci’s mother must return to work so she hires an undocumented maid named Lydia to be with Ceci. The two form an immediate and miraculous bond that sets the entire family on an emotional journey of discovery in a web of dark secrets.
