The iatitheater_ presents “Brown Buffalo”
Oscar “Zeta” Acosta, a prominent figure in Chicano Letters, died mysteriously in Mexico in 1974 at the age of 39. His body was never found. In this two act play the self-proclaimed “Brown Buffalo” is expelled from the Inframundo (underworld) by Native elders for being “too loud and profane.” They command him to return to the world of the living in a quest to “find his body.” In his search he interacts with the people he was closest to including ex-wife Sandy, son Daniel, and best friend/chief antagonist Raoul Duke who described Acosta as a “Samoan Attorney” in the book and movie Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.
