Two men live in the same apartment block. One likes long walks, Greek myths and foreign languages. The other likes making lists, fixing bikes and blackmail. One day, they bump into each other in a local cafe. Only this is no coincidence: one of them has been planning this moment for a very, very, very long time. A brilliant new play from Spain, in the department’s *Boundary Crossings Staged Reading Series.

Deceit. Trickery. Banishment. Death threats. Sounds serious but all ends happily in Shakespeare’s sparkling romantic comedy.

*Letters from Cuba

Written by María Irene Fornés
Directed by Linday Twigg '16
November 3 at 7 p.m., Porter Theatre
In her final, most auto-biographical play, María Irene Fornés gives us an unapologetically feminine look at a relationship that's been stretched across borders. A dreamy meditation on the ties of family, Letters from Cuba adresses the longing and urgency to maintain familial connection that is so integral to the immigrant experience. *Boundary Crossings Staged Reading Series.
