CAFÉ (full length) Workshop production at Columbia Stages, directed by Elena Araoz. A sip of coffee. An act the world enjoys one cup at a time. What is the real price of coffee? From the lens of a Mayan Teller, we follow the Maquin family from the ancient world to the present as they struggle to maintain their coffee farm. Set on the mystical Lake Atitlan in Guatemala, generations of the Maquin women dare to stay with the earth; fighting to secure a future as the Mayan calendar ends and a new world begins.
