Your Name Will Follow You Home

Murillo Your Name Will Follow

THE YOUNG, RECLUSIVE novelist Danny Santiago came out of nowhere and took the literary world by storm. His novel, FAMOUS ALL OVER TOWN, was a gritty, authentic depiction of Chicano life in East LA told through the eyes of a troubled teenager. But is it authentic? And who is the real Danny Santiago? Your Name Will Follow You Home takes us on a wild, only-in-America odyssey to the darkest heart of these questions. Charlie Chaplin. Communists in Hollywood. HUAC. The Blacklist. 50 B-Monster Movies. Architectural Fantasias. Fake Latinos. Jesse James.

Commissioned by Steppenwolf Theatre, Martha Lavey, Artistic Director.
