This is Federico Garcia Lorca’s El Público, as powerfully reimagined by Austin playwright Elizabeth Doss, who infuses Lorca’s unfinished play with details from his life and his murder. This is a show about the military coup in Spain in 1936, in which Lorca was captured and murdered in his hometown of Granada. This is history – where, as too often obtains in the present, personal freedoms and self-expression can get you killed. Co-directed by that same Doss and Lisa Laratta for paper chairs. And this, this is the Chronicle's Robert Faires' reaction to the show.
No events scheduled.
