La Loma was an original one-character play written Resident Playwright Christopher Wood for Stage Two’s Artistic Director Bryan W. Simon. Woods based La Loma on his own experience when he and two friends were unjustly held in a Mexican prison close to the Texas border.
The play had its World Premiere at the Stage Two Theater in Waukegan, Illinois, on November 6, 1990. It toured the country with Bryan reprising his role ending the tour in Los Angeles, California in an eight week run beginning on January 30, 1992.
The play garnered rave reviews and won many awards culminating in three Dramalogue Awards in Los Angeles for Outstanding Achievement in Performance, Outstanding Achievement in Direction and Outstanding Achievement in Scenic Design.
