Acheron: The River of Tragedy, is a play about identity and immigration. Leonardo dreams of crossing the river Acheron to get to the other side and live the Death-Dream. His desires are halted, however, when a mysterious migra (immigration agent) catches him. The agent, Nicanor, stands in the way of Leonardo’s crossing, yet nevertheless Nicanor becomes at different times Leonardo’s friend, his enemy, his guardian, his transgressor and even his victim.
