MISS MARGARIDA'S WAY Comes to West Of Lenin This Month

Outrage Onstage brings their next outrageous show MISS MARGARIDA'S WAY by Roberto Athayde to Fremont's West of Lenin Theatre, May 13th through the 22nd featuring Susan Finque directed by John Vreeke.

Written in 1971 by Roberto Athayde in reaction to the dictatorship in his country, Brazil, Miss Margarida's Way is an immersive dark comedy that looks deeply into the heart of power.

Audiences and critics in over fifty countries have cheered this allegory about totalitarianism that uses a classroom as its central metaphor. Miss Margarida teaches, teases, and taunts her eighth-grade class through mathematics, geography, history, and her own private curriculum. Unbalanced by sexual frustrations she can only express in aggression toward her students, Miss Margarida is an engaging monster; a dictator with the audience as her student body.

"Savage, mad, funny and ultimately moving [...] [Miss Margarida] is a grotesque, deranged and somehow perfectly normal school teacher [...]" - The New York Times

"A tour de force for an actress [...] part tirade, part political allegory, part expressionist vaudeville show." - New York Daily News

Experience education MISS MARGARIDA'S WAY from May 13-22, presented at West of Lenin (203 N 36th St, Seattle, WA 98103). Tickets prices are $Free-$40 and are available online at
