The Survivors/Los Sobrevivientes

The Survivors/Los Sobrevivientes is based on the historically documented group of women, children and slave people who survived the battle of the Alamo.  It’s an epic historical drama told by a diverse ensemble of people who didn’t make it into the history books. It’s an intimately drawn look at the surprising alliances necessary to survive the shifting and mercurial rule of Mexico’s fledgling democracy.


Developed through The Playwrights’ Center, A Jerome Travel/Study grant through South Texas and Mexico, at The Susanna Dickinson Museum and at LaunchPad at UCSB.
