November 2016 seems sooo long ago. Annie was thrilled to see her dear friend, Carlos, during his first visit back to NYC since moving to Florida… and he hasn’t changed a bit!
But he brought Gary with him … Annie’s estranged friend.
It can only take one person to change world events – but at this reunion two days before the 2016 Presidential election – it’s world events that do the changing.
What other playwrights say about The Diplomats:
“The play feels urgently relevant as he tackles racism, bigotry, feminism, and machismo. It’s not a white canvas that drives a wedge, but rather an impending election that is the catalyst for the disintegration of a small circle of friends. Memorable characters, and fun dialogue. Carlos’ speech about why he hates the number 3 might be the best in the play.” Greg Burdick (author, Monessen Falls)
“A very timely play that will spark very timely discussions. Diaz-Marcano ably, intimately captures three people coming back together to try and figure out how to move forward. ” – Matthew Weaver (author, The Girl Wore Red Licorice)
