About this Event

The American Library is delighted to be partnering with Word for Word again for another year, welcoming to Paris their performance of RETABLOS by Octavio Solis.

Featuring the chapters Retablos, The Way Over, Consuelo, El Judío, La Migra, La Llorona, Nothing Happens, The Quince, Mexican Apology, El Segundo, Neto, My Right Foot, and Jeep in the Water.

Directed by Sheila Balter and Jim Cave.

Word for Word’s latest full production, performed in English, is from author & playwright Octavio Solis. Retablos is a coming of age memoir; each chapter a memory tale, verging on fable, which paints a dreamlike picture of life in El Paso in the 60’s and ’70’s. Drawing from his own childhood, Solis says that he wrote these stories “to see how that skinny brown kid riding his bike out there in the desert made sense of his complicated, deeply beautiful and troubled world.”

Members are invited to consult the stories before enjoying the performance; please request them from the Member Services desk.

Please note the new location of this year's Word for Word - Théâtre du Ranelagh
