Description

UrbanTheater Company presents

Sonnets for an Old Century

by José Rivera

directed by Madrid St. Angelo in collaboration with Juan Castañeda and Ivan Vega

In a waiting room for the afterlife, we find a dreamscape filled with poignant, funny, lyrical and haunting monologues from recently deceased individuals.  This Midwest premiere by Obie Award-winning playwright and Academy Award-nominated screenwriter José Rivera asks: “Where do we go when we die?” And if you were to offer commentary regarding the life that you’ve lived, “What would you say?”
