'Sucia': A Latina Cinderella Story in School of Theatre and Dance

Thursday, March 08, 2018

GOLDEN GATE XPRESS -- This semester, the Fringe Festival is featuring Sucia, a play by Nicole Jost, an SF State playwright graduate student.

Jost fondly reflected on one of Roy Conboy’s, head of the playwriting program at SF State, writing workshops. She realized that everyone present was a person of color, something she feels is a rare and special thing made possible by Conboy’s efforts.

“Roy (Conboy) is the reason I applied to State,” Jost said. “I’ve seen how Roy makes space for students of color in playwriting and in theater at State, and it’s such a valuable service he provides for the whole community.”
