eSe Teatro & ACTLab to Premiere Rose Cano's BERNIE'S APT.

Se Teatro, in partnership with ACTLab, is thrilled to present Bernie's Apt.: a world premiere original work by Seattle playwright Rose Cano.

A Matriarchy. Confinement. Foster Girls.

Inspired by Lorca's classic play The House of Bernarda Alba, six contemporary women find themselves confined-not by the strict codes of social conduct of the early 1900s, but instead by house arrest, physical ailments, trauma, cultural oppression, and a system stacked against them. They seek solace in creating a new kind of family.

Directed by Julie Beckman and featuring Javonna Arriaga, Sophie Franco, Meme García, Pilar O'Connell, Yolanda Suarez, and Alma Villegas.

With six Latinas onstage, four Latina/os backstage, eSe Teatro strives to provide professional opportunities to local Latino artists by offering unique stories that reflect our broad multicultural community.

Bernie's Apt. runs from May 5 - 28 at ACT's The Bullitt Cabaret (700 Union Street, Seattle, WA 98101). Tickets start at $20 and may be purchased online at, by phone at 206.292.7676, or at the ACT Ticket Office. Available to ACTPass members for no additional charge.

In honor of the Mayoral Proclamation of "Latina/o Theatre Day" in Seattle on April 15, eSe Teatro is also proud to offer a 50% discount on tickets for the first two weeks of the show's run (excluding the May 5 preview), when purchased between April 15and April 17 with promo code LATINO.
