A VERY HERRERA HOLIDAY
By Alexis Scheer
Directed by Sarah Shin
Featuring Amanda Figueora
Lifestyle blogger Emma Herrera is live on Zoom to walk you through her favorite seasonal drinks
and crafts, and perhaps let some relationship frustrations slip—after all, who
isn’t looking for a little space from their spouse these days? But there’s a lot
of rum in that coquito, and something’s weird about the homemade wrapping
paper… A Very Herrera Holiday is a darkly comedic look at an influencer who may
be sharing more than festive fun.
“artfully directed by Sarah Shin……”
“In “A Very Herrera Holiday,” Scheer’s clear, engaging writing style coupled with the surrealism of the camerawork allows us to get to know the bubbly Herrera. And, Shin’s careful direction helps pull audiences right into Herrera’s warm kitchen. Shin, who most recently directed Central Square Theater’s “The First Pineapple and Other Folktales,” wants it to feel that way. In her work, she creates space for “characters and (collaborators) to exist in their boldest and most honest form,” she writes on her website. She aspires for showgoers to feel like they’re coming over for a home-cooked meal.”
