Paula_PazDirected by Paula Paz on a translation by Caridad Svich, each performance will be interpreted both in English and in Spanish, with two different casts and two different stagings. First half is in Spanish with English surtitles and the second half in English.

Written between 1922 and 1926 and premiered in1933, Lorca offers a tragic farce where the lyrical meets the grotesque.

Chaos ensues on their wedding night when Belisa confesses her love for another man.

With: Juan Carlos Talavera, Paul Rider, Montserrat Roig.
