Manuel Zarate


Meet Jose. After taking the art world by storm, a stroke paralyzes his body and life. Enter Elizabeth, an unlikely muse who doesn't know when to shut up. Meeting just once a month, a startling bond forms between painter and model, each pushing the other to discoveries and openings. When their confidences are revealed in public, will it rip all that is fragile apart? Stroke premiered as part of the five-part series Love Sonatas at Austin's Long Center for the Performing Arts and starred Douglas Taylor and Liz Fisher. The play is currently undergoing re-writes for further production.
