Written by Spanish playwright Jordi Galceran and directed by José Zayas, Cancún is a comedy about contemporary relationships and marriage. It is a story of two married couples spending a dream vacation in Cancún. A night of fun and frolic brings up questions of “what might have been” and the realization that happiness and personal fulfillment often hinge on the smallest decisions.
Goucher’s Futuro Latino Learning Center is a grassroots initiative founded on the college’s campus in 2009. Nearly 120 Latino families in mostly underserved Baltimore County area come to the center on Saturdays to receive free ESL courses, computer training, job search assistance, Spanish-English conversation courses for adults, and a cultural-enrichment and playtime programs for children. The center is staffed almost entirely by Goucher students, who get real-world opportunities to improve their Spanish conversational skills and interact with the local Latino community in a meaningful way.
