In the midst of this year’s presidential election, a play about a wall along the border of the United States and Mexico seems overly political. Touching on issues of race, culture and familial strife, Nuevo California explores sensitive social themes. Nuevo follows the story of Pope Felipe (played by Aidan Marchetti), a young, radically liberal pope who wants to help facilitate the process of combining San Diego, Calif. and Tijuana, Mexico into a new state, Nuevo California.
