Playwright Octavio Solis is returning to the Magic Theatre in San Francisco. The company announced it will continue its 46th Season with the world premiere of Se Llama Cristina.

Solis’ latest play is a multi-layered fever dream in which a young man and woman wake up in a strange room, and must piece together their past identities and relationship while they construct a new future and grapple with the possibility of being parents.

The production is directed by Producing Artistic Director Loretta Greco and will run January 23 – February 17, 2013 at Magic Theatre, Fort Mason Center, Building D, 3rd Floor.

Octavio Solis directed The Brothers Size, also at Magic, which Clinton Stark called “rip-roaring.”

In 2003, Solis won the National Latino Playwriting Award for Bethlehem, a play about the nature of evil, first produced by the Intersection for the Arts.
