The hottest day of summer is interrupted when a community leader is rushed to the hospital. As Red fights for his life, the neighborhood bands together to hunt down his wannabe executioner.

Linnell Festival of New Plays Presents:
summertime | an interlude
Written By aniello fontano
Directed By Erik Ehn

The University of New Mexico’s Department of Theatre and Dance is pleased to kick off its spring production season with a fully staged production of summertime | an interlude (National Partners of the American Theatre Playwriting Award Nominee) by aniello fontano (3rd year MFA candidate in UNM’s award winning MFA in Dramatic Writing Program).

The sounds of the city at play. All at once - Laughter. Gossip. The “cshhh” of a beer can opening. Dice hitting cement. Somebody yells down to the street from an upper floor. A bus stops and opens its door. Some kids sprint down the sidewalk. A car passes blaring music out its broken windows. A fist fight breaks out. Laughter and hugs follow. The bus pulls away. The city is alive. Suddenly - a GUNSHOT echoes through the space...

The hottest day of summer is interrupted when a community leader is rushed to the hospital. As Red fights for his life, the neighborhood bands together to hunt down his wannabe executioner. Through belly laughs, cold beer, and blunt smoke, the truth about the shooting at "Red's Deli" bleeds out. Relationships are tested, lies are told, questions are answered, confessions are made — and before sundown, the neighborhood loses a piece of its heart forever.
