"clever new play... a very strong cast... speaks to contemporary audiences" (Broadway World)
"rich texture of humanity with clever, biting humor" (DC Metro Theater Arts)
“delightful and poignant” (MD Theatre Guide)
"humorous and entertaining" (Metro Diversity)
"deeply funny... compels the audience to stop checking their devices for awhile and get in touch with human emotions" (The InTowner)

Two families are changed forever when a selfie is sent to one person but shared by another. In this highly technological world it is easier to connect intimately with one another… but at what cost?

SPECIAL EVENT!!! Artist Talk Closes La Foto on February 25

Playwright Gustavo Ott and visual artist Muriel Hasbun will participate in a discussion with the audience after the last performance of La Foto-A Selfie Affair on Sunday, February 25.
