Award-wining playwright Martyna Majok’s Ironbound is a dark comic, heartbreaking portrait of a woman for whom love is a luxury—and a liability—as she fights to survive in America. Darja, a Polish immigrant cleaning lady, is done talking about feelings; it’s time to talk money. Over the course of 20 years, and three relationships, Darja negotiates for her future with med who can offer her love or security, but never both.

Studies suggest that Latino kids have fewer opportunities to engage in physical activity than their white counterparts. Latino kids also are less likely than white kids to meet federal recommendations of at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day due to fewer parks and other active spaces, fewer school- or community-based physical activity programs, and differing parenting styles.
