A deep and detailed portrayal of Latinx folks and the community they had built within gang culture. The humanity that was offered and protected throughout the piece reflected what has been missing in other portrayals of Latinx people in other forms of media.

I had the pleasure of attending the preview performance of Royal Flush, and was blown away! It was a delight to see a thoughtful play with meaningful content. That, paired with strong acting and innovative direction makes it a Must See! Multiple people in the audience were moved to tears. Royal Flush was by far the best Fringe play I have seen. I will certainly be returning for their upcoming performances. ... full review

Amazing show! Love the message and perspective on street/gang culture. Being from the east coast and knowing some people in future generations of that life, it is great to see its beginnings. Thank you for putting that story out and shedding light on what many of us may not know. Great acting, staging, directing, and artistic takes. Can't wait to see more from everyone involved in the production!!!... full review
