Can a vacation to Mexico salvage a failing marriage? Mexico City is a satiric romance that explores tourism as voyeurism and the battle of the sexes.

Mexico City tells the story of a 1960s era couple trying to rekindle the fire in their relationship by going to Mexico on holiday. The play grapples with themes of whiteness and tourism as a form of fetishization and colonization, through the lens of a bickering husband and wife on vacation.
