Undesirable Elements/Albuquerque


About the Production

Undesirable Elements/Albuquerque is a glimpse into five unique lives from Albuquerque, New Mexico. Cast members from diverse personal backgrounds explore intersecting experiences of difference, including disability, Native American identity, and single motherhood. Each shares their own personal experiences as they explore the ways in which they do and do not feel like they belong in the worlds in which they are living.
