Lorca in a Green Dress

by Nilo Cruz

Directed by Juan Castañeda

Chicago Premiere
August 20 through October 3, 2009
Performances were at the Lincoln Square Theatre

Upon his death, the great Spanish poet arrives in the "Lorca Room" in purgatory. With dramatic and sensual flamenco flair, Lorca in a Green Dress is a spellbinding exploration of the life and death of Federico García Lorca following his murder at the hands of Spanish fascists. Five different aspects of himself play a role in helping to accept the inevitable—the passage from life to death.

In rep with A Shroud for Lazarus.
