Gente de Teatro presents Madenusa
A year before its 25th anniversary, Gente de Teatro hosts the premiere of Madenusa by the Argentine playwright Claudia Soroka. While serving as a mirror of Fernández Tiscornia's Made in Argentina that was presented to the public in 2011, Soroka's play also underscores one of the multiple facets of the immigrant community.
In an attempt to restart a life that had been interrupted, this time Mabel and Osvaldo, long-time residents of the USA, have invited la Yoli and el Negro (commonly used Argentine term of endearment) to come from Argentina for a visit. What happens when the world one left behind is suddenly back?
The production will be in Hamman Hall on the Rice University campus.
