If there were a Chicano version of Tinder, Ruby Red would be the first to admit that she’s swiped right a little too often. She’s the mujer who’s dated too many men and in all her years, has had a little too much fun. And in “Ruby Reds, Big Birds y Burros”, the second installment of the Tejana Trilogy — a three-part play written by San Antonio-native Marisela Barrera — Ruby Red is the “chicana everywoman.” In this second piece of Barrera’s trilogy, audiences will have the pleasure of meeting Ruby Red, as well as Big Bird (think modern-day Lechuza) and Cuero, an older man who is related to the Donkey Lady — yes, that Donkey Lady — and has his own set of problemas. The three characters’ paths eventually cross in Barrera's latest piece, in which she’ll be the only performer on stage during the Jump-Start performance. Taking place in a city that mirrors San Antonio, audiences will recognize iconic spots like Saluté and Bill Miller’s, and will be familiar with the play’s South Texas slang and Tex-Mex flair.
