2016 Latino New Play Festival: My Dad is a Pterodactyl
The Latino New Play Festival will present My Dad is a Pterodactyl. Renee’s father, an Air Force pilot, has recently died in the Iraq War, but is very much alive in his daughter’s mind through her imaginary pet Pterodactyl. Ana, Renee’s mother, has not informed Renee of her father’s death, but when Renee sneaks off to the local museum to visit the Pterodactyl exhibit and find her father, Ana must confront the truth and inform her daughter. Together, they learn to cope with their loss.
