Miami New Drama at Colony Theatre is pleased to announce the return of A Special Day, the critically acclaimed, award winning play co-starring and co-directed by Ana Graham and Antonio Vega.

After receiving a limited weekend engagement last season, Miami New Drama is presenting an extended 2 week run of The Play Company and Por Piedad Teatro's production of the show at the Colony Theatre's stage, March 16 - 26, 2017. The play will run Thursday through Saturday at 8:00 p.m. with a Sunday matinee performances at 3:00 p.m.
Graham and Vega created their own theatrical adaptation of the classical Italian movie as it transports the audience to Mussolini's Italy. While Rome celebrates Hitler's visit on May 8, 1938, two neighbors meet as a drama unfolds in their apartment. Relevant to today's political climate, the two confront a politically charged landscape in the rise of fascism at the time. With the help of a piece of chalk, Graham and Vega create a whole new universe in an empty space creating windows and other scenic elements painted directly onto the walls. The audience is invited to join the Mexican actors as they control the light and sounds in an empty Italian apartment. When reviewing the play, New York Times called it "fast pace, crack timing and almost whimsical inventiveness . . . So engaging."
