Susana Hornos Presents A Tribute To The Multiple Award-Winning Actor Federico Luppi At The United Solo Festival

Susana Hornos Presents A Tribute To The Multiple Award-Winning Actor Federico Luppi At The United Solo Festival

Hache Producciones presents Susana Hornos' solo performance on November 17th at 7 pm at the United Solo Festival - Theatre Row, 410 West 42nd Street, Nueva York, NY 10036.

Too Young to Be a Widow is a monologue directed by Jo Kelly (Los Angeles) and Paulina Gálvez (Spain) that speaks boldly of death and mourning, free from taboos. It is born from the experience of a woman who lived a 20-year-long happy marriage outside of common standards-they were 40 years apart. How did they meet? What happened when he got older? The monologue does not spare us the pain of the protagonist but neither the hilarious moments. It is a tribute to a first-person love story told through loss and overcoming. In spite of it all, when he died, she decided to forge ahead in the most unexpected way: by creating a show. She had learned the most important thing from her out-of-the-ordinary love story: a passion for living.

"This story is my tribute to the person who gave me the most courage and respect in my life, my husband, Federico Luppi. There was no better way to honor our story of love and passion for life and the theatre." Susana Hornos
