It is said in Spain that the dead are always more alive than the day they were born. So it is for the presumed murderer of Federico Garcia Lorca, Juan Luis Trescante Medina. Sixty years after Lorca's death, the aging fascist, Trescante, fights to hold onto the myth of a murder that defined his life. But in Spain, sixty years is little more than a breath, and a reckoning is all but inevitable.
The play speaks to issues all along the spectrum of humanity; arrogance, fear, self-delusion, dignity, love and redemption. The play takes the time to look at a human being at a specific moment in time, from every angle, and lets each audience member take away what speaks to him or her.
By Michael Bradford
Directed by May Adrales
“Michael Bradford is one of those rare playwrights who captures the depth, power, and soul of his characters. His work is both theatrical and poetic; it is poignant and relevant. When I experience a Michael Bradford play, I am stepping into a world that is full of life and longing.”
- Daniella Topol, Lark Play Development Center
