Magic Spoon Video Promo: EL NOGALAR by Tanya Saracho, June 4 - 20, 2015
This modern bilingual adaptation of Anton Chekhov's The Cherry Orchard takes place on the beautiful but fading estate, Hacienda Los Nogales, now a hostage of the explosive drug wars prevalent in Northern Mexico. El Nogalar is the story of the Galvan family's struggle to hold on to their homestead and their precarious social status before it slips away. The play shadows the family's housekeeper, Dunia, as she watches the family matriarch Maite and her daughters squander their money and risk losing everything to a local drug cartel, La Maña. Despite the repeated warnings from the once humble but loyal worker in the estate's pecan orchard, Guillermo Lopez, Maite ignores her dwindling fortune as stubbornly as she ignores La Maña.
This poignant and moving story from playwright Tanya Saracho and directed by Rudy Ramirez explores social class, family, identity and the choice between adapting to the changing world or getting left behind.
"What would you risk for the land you love?"
Teatro Vivo is proud to present El Nogalar by Tanya Saracho, directed by Rudy Ramirez.
