Next Thursday, September 21 at 8:00 pm, the curtain goes up on Latino Theatre Project’s newest production: Ay, Carmela! by celebrated Spanish playwright José Sanchis Sinisterra adapted in English by Pulitzer-winner Nilo Cruz & Catalina Botello.
Produced in association with Theatre Off Jackson.
Directed by Fernando Luna.
Featuring LTP favorite Alma Villegas and the amazing Chip Wood.
This production is designed to provide a rich Latino cultural experience. Ay, Carmela! is a story about a company with a variety show, made up of Carmela and her husband Paulino, who travel up and down Spain during the Spanish Civil War. They accidentally cross the front without realizing it from the Republican to the fascist side. When they are surprised by General Franco’s troops, they are forced to improvise a theatrical performance in honor of the fascist army, which ends in tragedy. Using music, comedy, pathos, and fantastical realism, the play explores a confused space dominated by fear, aggression, and the innocence that is always silenced by war.
