A NIGHT WITH THE DEAD to Play The Kraine Theater This Fall
FRIGID New York @ Horse Trade in association with Something from ABroad will present the World Premiere of Martha Lorena Preve Ayora's A Night With the Dead, directed by Paloma De Vega Centenera, October 26-29 at The Kraine Theater (85 East 4th Street between 2nd Avenue and Bowery) with performances Thursday through Saturday at 7pm and Sunday at 3pm. Tickets ($20) may be purchased in advance at www.horseTRADE.info. The performance will run approximately 60 minutes, with no intermission.
You don't talk about death, you don't mess with it, and you certainly don't question tradition. In a world where death is considered taboo, Catrina, a Mexican girl, will defy society's rules to find out where our loved ones go when they die. A Night with the Dead is a story about the origins of the Mexican holiday Día de los Muertos and how one girl's drive can change the course of an afterlife.
The cast will feature Arjun Anand, Paloma De Vega, Bruno Fogagnoli, Fernanda Hidalgo, Naeem Mirza, Mayelyn Perdomo, and Shamell Santana with Lighting and Sound Design by Ryan Barto, Production Assistant Grant Fisher, and Assistant Director Katharine Nedder.
