Americans Lost In America: Jose Rivera and the Meaning of Home Public Deposited

Abstract
  • In the fall semester of 2018, with artistic and financial support from the department of theatre, I directed a full production of Jose Rivera’s The House of Ramon Iglesia. The play concerns strained relationships within a family of Puerto Rican immigrants in New York. When the patriarch, Ramon, resists an overdue return to their native home, conflicting desires test bonds and open old wounds. I used the production to explore the meaning of “home” to disenfranchised, Latinx immigrants. Our company soon discovered that a universal answer will never satisfy everyone’s needs and desires. A constant search for home defines life in the United States, for immigrants and natural-born citizens alike.
