The Immigrant / El Inmigrante: A Political Drama by César Meléndez
Costa Rica's Teatro La Polea comes to Gunston Arts Center with its sensational hit, The Immigrant / El Inmigrante. Written and directed by César Meléndez and based on actual events, the play tells the story of a Nicaraguan immigrant who arrives in Costa Rica hoping to find a better life. His sole companion, friend, advisor and guide is Jesus on the crucifix that he carried across the border. Tender and violent in equal measure, this stunning one-man show is a fascinating exploration into the plight of immigrants in Central America -- and the world. Also performed under the title El Nica, it has been seen by audiences throughout Latin America, the U.S. France and Spain. It's performed in Spanish with live English dubbing.
