THE GOAT LADY’S DAUGHTER by Tristan Young Mercado
Sunday, September 29th at 6:30 pm
Hyde Park Theatre, 511 W. 43rd St.
Set in a small coastal town, THE GOAT LADY’S DAUGHTER explores the multi-generational aspects of abuse between a mother, daughter and grandmother and how difficult it can be to break that cycle.
As a Carolina Mama living in Texas, Tristan Mercado considers herself a light blue spot in a sea of burnt orange. She is an avid writer and storyteller. She’s had personal narratives featured on Mamaload and has performed in storytelling shows like Testify, Live Strong, and Listen to Your Mother. Her screenplay made it into the finals of Meryl Streep’s contest for women writers over 40, and her plays have made it to Best of Week and Best of Fest in FronteraFest Short Fringe at Austin’s Hyde Park Theatre 4 years in a row. Her favorite subjects are her awesome husband, her incredible son, and her crazy ass Mama.
