Theater is hard to find in the large parking lot and many buildings. Allow enough time.

if you know your way around that area I recommend Cafe Caryle is Shirlington. We had a delightful brunch outdoors on a warm Sunday afternoon just before the show and then had about a 10 minute drive to the theater.

*_By María Beatriz Vergara

Troupe: Zero No Zero Teatro_

Two well-conceived characters – both physically and spiritually – create this portrait of “a class of old women” who practice a way of being and a way of life … From what they say and what they keep to themselves, we become avid confidants of their thoughts and naughtiness.

*_By Sara Jeffrey

*_By Hilda Levy

__Troupe: Compañía Liliana Pécora

*PUERTO RICO: Una taza de té para una mujer casada (A Cup of Tea for a Married Lady)

*_By Eugenio Hernández

Troupe: Producciones Raúl Méndez_

The actress sings, laughs and cries, leading the audience to explore its feelings, all the while exposing women as men’s objects of desire. Taught to be submissive; and neglected and mistreated by inequality and machismo, even where they least expect it.

_U.S. premiere. Suitable for ages 15 and up.

_
