Survivors, an Alamo Play
Survivors, an Alamo Play is based on the historically documented group of women, children and enslaved people who survived the battle of the Alamo. An epic historical drama told by a diverse ensemble of people who didn’t make it into the history books, it’s also 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, Launch Pad at UCSB and Texas State University.
