In this moving tale of how tales are born, you'll follow a writer as he tries to piece together the grand, lost romance of a spinster aunt. Belisario becomes entangled in a world where memories and the present are interwoven in this humorous story about family secrets. La Señorita de Tacna (The Young Lady From Tacna) is told from the writer's perspective, mixing false recollections with actual family history. As Belisario tries to connect the loose ends of his Aunt Mamae's life, you'll witness the birth of a new story. Written by Nobel Prize winner Mario Vargas Llosa of Peru, the play is in Spanish with English surtitles. Learn More

In light of "42", this is a timely look at Clemente, the first Latin Baseball superstar. Only fitting that he was signed to the Dodgers organization, but after sitting the bench in Montreal, Pittsburgh picked him up where he played his major league career. Play is bilingual with characters moving back and forth between English and Spanish, and incorporates a large video screen for translation as well as showing video clips to provide context for the story line as the stage itself is very sparse. The play starts at ends with his death - first with the wife at his funeral and then again ending with that. In between is the story of his life, the depth is necessarily shallow, but you are able to understand the forces of racism, the learning of english, that shaped the man the many of us old guys loved in our youth.
