Chicana theater artist Marisela Barrera has previously adapted works by Sandra Cisneros and Ana Castillo but turned inward for Cuero, La Ruby Red, y El Big Bird — a three-act play developed from her own short stories. Inspired by recollections of her upbringing in the Rio Grande Valley, the production employs a cast of four — and live music by Azul Barrientos — to explore borderland memories of playground politics in Eagle Pass, Selena daydreams and Friday nights at McAllen’s Gaslight Club and a winged beast that haunts the Mexican ghost town of Guerrero Viejo. $8-$10, 8:30pm Fri-Sat, 3pm Sun, Jump-Start Performance Co., 710 Fredericksburg Rd., (210) 227-5867, jump-start.org. — BR
