Leeches by Adrian Enzastiga

Iowa New Play Festival – Reading Series

By Adrian Enzastiga
Directed by Natalie Villamonte Zito

Leeches is a full-length play that takes place at an eviction court in an ambiguously Midwest post-pandemic U.S. city. The play explores the process of an eviction, the cycle of poverty, and the corrupt oppression of the American capitalist system:

Eviction court is a no man’s land;
tenants’ rights are crushed under landlord’s command,
and social workers (can) do little to offer a hand,
but there are some who refuse to idly stand.

Guest Roundtable to follow.
