Las cosas extraordinarias
Las cosas extraordinarias
de Duncan Macmillan con Jonny Donahoe
Esta pieza es una obra de teatro divertida y profunda a la vez, donde el público será parte imprescindible de la historia. Si hay tantas cosas en el mundo que merecen la pena… ¿por qué es tan difícil la vida?Una joven llevaaños haciendo una lista con las cosas extraordinarias de este mundo,aquellas cosas por las que merece la pena vivir. Su idea se remonta a cuando tenía seisaños, el día que su padre le fue a buscar al colegio porque su madre había intentadosuicidarse por primera vez. La desesperación de la niña ante la idea de perder a su madre lelleva a diseñar esta lista de cosas que, aunque en un principio tiene previsto un punto y final, acabará siendo una balsa de salvación durante toda su vida.
Boundless Exposed 2022
Boundless Exposed is a workshop and mentorship program in support of early-career theater designers of color. Working collaboratively with peers and experienced mentors, these designers create and assemble an original installation design, which becomes the basis for a workshop of a short play. By giving emerging designers the opportunity to take the lead, Boundless Exposed fuels creativity, fosters professional skills and provides valuable networking opportunities to the next generation. This year we will be presenting the play Chains: A Monologue for Two Voices, written and directed by Mariana Carreño King.
by Luis Araúo
A corrupt lawyer and an immigrant prostitute negotiate their services while questioning the manipulation and loss of values in a capitalist society. This is a story of domination, money, power, and sex, a story that develops to an unexpected end. This play premiered in Spain and subsequently had a production in Puerto Rico. Luis Araújo is a very respected Spanish playwright and we are honored to be producing the U.S. premiere of his play. The play will be presented in Spanish with English super-titles.
