Written by José Rivera, recent Academy Award Nominee for The Motorcycles Diaries, Each Day Dies with Sleep is the story of a young womans struggle to find an identity apart from the two men in her life her father and her husband. Written in Riveras typical satiric and super realistic style, this fantastical tragic-comedy leaps from coast to coast, and from one outrageous moment to the next.

A L.A. Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring: Laura Ceron, Noe Cuellar and Frankie Davila.

Review:

Here is a production to restore our faith in live theater, and a play to restore our interest in new theater. Jose Rivera...an American playwright born in Puerto Rico--wrote EACH DAY DIES WITH SLEEP...it's real subject is the primitive human struggle between animal instincts and civilized order. The language poetic, intense, heightened, rude, stunted, funny, by turns--is always vivid. I simply testify that it is months since I was so worked up by characters in a play as here.... Rivera's play brings fresh imaginative vitality to the London theater. Its conception of the human condition as a psychic battleground--lively, funny, erotic, tragic--has a rare force. --Alastair Macaulay, Financial Times

Surrealism, magic realism, expressionism, alternate-world realism--Rivera s tortured triangle of father, daughter and son-in-law writhes across the entire map of modern Hispanic literature, in a beautifully lofty English--unsettling, disturbing, rich with excitement and hope. --Michael Feingold, Village Voice
