Yale and community theater stage Spanish language play

As part of Yale’s Latin American Theatre Series project, the Bregamos Community Theater of New Haven will  present two Spanish language performances of “El Monte Calvo” by Colombian playwright Jairo Aníbal Niño, on  Saturday, April 13 and Sunday, April 14.

Free and open to the public, the play will be performed and directed by members of the Yale faculty. Both performances will take take place at 8 p.m. at Bregamos Theater, 491 Blatchley Ave.

A joint venture of Yale’s multidisciplinary Council on Latin American and Iberian Studies and Department of Spanish and Portuguese, the Latin American Theater Series project was created to demonstrate the relevance of the Latin American theatrical tradition by staging plays produced on campus and by inviting theater groups, theater critics, playwrights, and performers from Latin American countries to give presentations and performances.

According to organizers,  the project is “an extension of Yale University, artistically influencing theaters and audiences of our community.” Performances take place in a variety of public venues, including schools, hospitals, nursing homes, and parks.
