Three years after Faye Salvez went missing, her family and friends still have no closure. When a young artist promises he can capture Faye’s essence in a family portrait by speaking with her loved ones, Faye’s friends and family gather for a series of interviews. Memories clash and old wounds are reopened throughout the course of one day in the Salvez family home. Is it always the responsibility of an artist to present the truth?
Painting Faye Salvez has been developed at the New York Musical Festival (NYMF), the Library at the Public Theater, Tuacahn Theatre’s New Works Festival, and Northwestern University. Music from Painting Faye Salvez has been performed at the York Theatre’s New Works Concert, the Chicago Dramatists Guild, the Allen & Gray Musical Festival’s New Voices Concert, the Titchfield Festival Theatre’s New Songwriters Concert (UK), and Under The Arch Incubator’s New Work Cabaret (featuring the national touring cast of The Band’s Visit!).
