NALIP Discount for 'Lorca in a Green Dress,' Opening July 20 in LA

CASA 0101 Theater and The Center for Collaboration With the Arts at Whitter College proudly presents Lorca In A Green Dress written by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright, Nilo Cruz.  Set in 1936, in the play, Lorca in a Green Dress, the great Spanish poet, Federico García Lorca arrives in the “Lorca Room” in Purgatorio, a room of the soul, where he must spend 40 days of morning following his murder at the hands of Spanish fascists.  Five different actors portray aspects of the poet’s personality in a surrealistic landscape that questions what it means to die, to live, to create and to love.  The cast also includes a Flamenco dancer and guitarist.  This production will feature original music composed by Christopher Davis with original lyrics penned by Nilo Cruz. 

In Lorca in a Green Dress, Cruz balances audiences on the thin line between life and death.  Inspired by the poetry of Federico García Lorca, audiences are brought into a surreal world where Lorca is forced to come to terms with his own death, and in doing so, he realizes the beauty, and significance, of life.
