world premiere production
in the Bingham Theater
February 8-19, 2023
Josefina is a rising stand-up comic, an irreverent spirit who takes nothing seriously. Her religious younger sister Betsaida, on the other hand, takes everything seriously. When an illness upends Betsaida’s life and Josefina becomes her caregiver, they’re thrown together to rediscover all the history and humor, friction and affection that still fuel their relationship. La Egoista explores the bond between sisters, the cost of caregiving, and the hilariously fine line between selfish and selfless.
La Egoista is the winner of the 2022 National Latine Playwrights Award. La Egoista was commissioned and developed by Live & In Color, and received a reading at the 2022 Latinx Theatre Commons (LTC) Comedy Carnaval.
