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).
