Mountain View-based Pear Theatre’s live-filmed production of “Elliot: A Soldier’s Fugue,” which kicked off the 2020-2021 season last month, is scheduled to be streamed through Sunday.

Written by Quiara Alegría Hudes, the drama traces the legacy of war through three generations of a Puerto Rican family. It is the story of Elliot, a 19-year-old Marine, and his experiences after returning from Iraq. The production offers a multigenerational look at war as Elliot’s family members share their stories of military service in Vietnam and Korea.

The play is the first part of a trilogy that also includes the Pulitzer Prize-winning drama “Water by the Spoonful” and “The Happiest Song Plays Last.”

The “Elliot” cast includes Marco Neves as Elliot, Francisco Rodriguez as Pop, Gabriel Montoya as Grandpop and Carolina Morones as Ginny.

Behind the scenes, Tessa Corrie directs, assisted by Amy Lizardo. Kelly Weber Barraza serves as stage manager, Marisely Cortes provides costumes, Kevin Davies is the set designer and Ed Hunter coordinates lighting.

Those who purchase tickets will receive access to a password-protected filming of the show. Tickets are $30-$34. The cost includes a backstage pass” that adds interviews, behind-the-scenes looks at production, live digital events and other chances for patrons to connect with each other and the artists involved.
