Panel 1

The Story

Ring of Red: A Barrio Story is a new stage play exploring the impact of the Vietnam War on Mexican American families in Southern California.

When a group of Mexican American veterans and their wives gathers to share their life stories, an entire generation comes alive. From the barrios of Los Angeles to the jungles Vietnam, Tomás Summers Sandoval’s unique “testimonio” style play connects audiences to the invisible histories within our very communities. Based on actual oral histories with Chicano Vietnam vets and their families, Ring of Red is a reminder of the enduring sacrifices of war and a powerful testament to the human spirit.

Ring of Red: A Barrio Story is produced with support from The Whiting Foundation, the History Department at Pomona College, and the Intercollegiate Department of Chicana/o-Latina/o Studies at the Claremont Colleges.
