Requiem Por La Lluvia
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
The poor, drunken widower of a towns laundress morns for his wife, La Jesusa. But where does the guilt of this woman's death lie? A woman who has spent her life cleaning the wealthy's dirty laundry. This drunkard is not a good man but he knows intimately the filth we all leave for someone else's tired hands. This unblinking, and often hilarious look at the hypocrisy of the elite is just as fresh and relevant today as when the play first opened in 1960. Who is to blame for the death of La Jesusa? Perhaps all of us. Requiem for the Rain is a unipersonal play written by Ecuador's most famous playwright, Jose Martinez Querolo. It has since been translated into over five languages and performed all over the world. Jose Ignacio Vivero's direction pulls this play out of time and makes its interpretation immediate. After a tour of the Dominican Republic, Requiem for the Rain now makes its New York debut. Performed in its original language of Spanish with English subtitles.
Venue: Symphony Space
