D3LINQUENTZ centers on four juvenile delinquents at a Group Home to “straighten up.” There is Stefany, the damaged girl, whose Mom doesn’t know her daughter is high on the way to the Group Home; Laprell, the vigilant realist, who cares for his ailing elder; Irma, the fearless Chola, who can’t wait to get out of the place; and Trinity, the fragile psychotic, who is lost in her own little world. Not only does Stefany perform as these four characters, she also imitates the staff at the Group Home. She slides in and out of each character with such ease and grace that you cannot help but like them. This dramedy is quite engaging and poignant as you delve into the core of each troubled youth. The venue is one of the best places to see great theatre here in Southern California. The people both on the stage and behind the scenes are quite welcoming and pleasant to be around.
