Beauty in Two Languages: An Evening of Spanish-Language Poetry (in English Translation)
Wednesday, March 29 at 7pm
From Lorca to Neruda, some of the world's best poets have written in Spanish. They have given us poems of such beauty that they shine, even in English translation. Join cast members from The Women of Padilla and members of the Two River Theater family as they read Spanish-language poems in translation.
Two River Theater will present a Spanish-language reading of The Women of Padilla (Las Mujeres de Padilla). The reading will feature cast members from Two River’s production, and guest artists on the set of The Women of Padilla.
Through the power of food, faith, laughter, and each other, eight women find a way to carry on life at home while their husbands are away at war. Inspired by the heightened lyricism of the renowned playwright and poet Federico García Lorca, this beautiful new play shows us there is always a way— even through the hardest of times—to set our love free.
