La Egoista

West Coast Premiere

La Egoista

by Erlina Ortiz
directed by Daphnie Sicre


Josefina is a stand-up comic on the rise who takes nothing seriously. Her younger sister Betsaida, on the other hand, takes everything seriously. When a sudden diagnosis upends Betsaida's life, they're thrown together to rediscover all the affection, friction, and humor that still fuels their relationship.

La Egoista thrillingly combines  stand-up and theater to explore the bonds between sisters, the cost of healthcare, and the hilariously fine line between selfish and selfless.

La Egoista won the 2022 National Latine Playwrights Award

World Premiere produced by Actors Theatre of Louisville. Executive Artistic Director Robert Barry Fleming.
La Egoista was commissioned and developed by Live & In Color, and received a reading at the 2022 Latinx Theatre Commons (LTC) Comedy Carnaval.
