Following the success of its Micro Theater Festival in July 2018, the Tallahassee Hispanic Theater will present the Second Annual Micro Theater Festival on June 21-22,2019 at 7:30pm at the Carriage House at Goodwood Museum. The Second Annual Micro Theater Festival will present a series of short, 15 to 20-minute plays written by Hispanic playwrights. In addition to the plays, the audience will have the opportunity to enjoy drinks and Hispanic food provided by Tally Arepas (available for purchase), and live Hispanic music throughout the event.
The Festival will be a presented on the historic grounds of the Goodwood Museum and Gardens. The audience will be able to enjoy the setting, music, food, and performances (presented all in the same open space) while moving freely around the space and mingling with others. The plays will be performed in English.
This year the Tallahassee Hispanic Theater will present five short plays as part of the Festival.
Mother Love by Almúdena Grandes: this fiercely parodic monologue (originally a short story) tells, from the perspective of an apparently exemplary mother, a black tale about the disintegrating relationship between a mother and a daughter.
A Mommy and a Daddy by Ignacio del Moral’s is a lively, and somewhat melancholic dialogue through which two people, a man and a woman, find each other and express their longings while they take their respective babies for a stroll.
A Night in the subway by Paloma Pedrero: Late at night, in a deserted subway station, a man and woman meet and have a conversation. “Sometimes, random encounters with a stranger can surprise us, and we learn as much about them as we do about ourselves.”
Castings by Cristina Colmena: An actor and an actress meet at a casting where both of them are auditioning for the same part. “This comedy plays with the old metaphor of Life/Theater just like Pirandello did but with a comic undertone.”
Capricho by Nilo Cruz: a forgotten understudy waits in vain for his call, still in his costume for some long-ago Lope de Vega play. “Foolish and forlorn, he’s a leftover trouper, and old-world soul doing a ten-minute vaudeville turns on the virtues of standing by.”
Festival Tickets are $15 (adults) and $12 (students, seniors and Goodwood members).
