A Visit From San Cristobal
by Gregory Ramos



A Visit from San Cristobal is a modern folkloric tale of magic realism, family secrets, and the quest to find home against all odds. Set in contemporary Los Angeles, the play focuses on the affluent Mendez family, world renown violinist, Benjamin and his designer wife , Caridad, whose life has recently been saved by a kidney transplant. When a stranger appears at the door claiming to be the donor and seeking refuge from those pursuing her, the Mendez family must face their own fears and the secrets that have been buried not only in the present, but long ago in San Cristobal. Add to the plot Caridad’s vain and hypochondriac mother, a loyal housekeeper and a supernatural villain, San Cristobal is a modern comedy-drama-morality tale about the lengths we go for family and home.

A Visit From San Cristobal was given a reading at Company of Angeles in Los Angeles. The play was included in the 2024  ORIGINS series at CV REP where it had a development workshop and  a staged reading.
