Bridge Across the Wall
Symmetry Theatre Company's Fall Festival
San Miguel de Allende, Mexico
Native Gardens by Karen Zacarías
Directed by Mary Ann Rodgers
October 10 - 20 @ San Miguel Playhouse
A border dispute arises out of the need for a barbecue. In Native Gardens, Karen Zacarias has created a hilarious, warm-hearted, and fresh comedy about culture, fences, and hydrangeas. Tania and Pablo Del Valle are a smart, likeable younger couple. Frank and Virginia Butley are a smart, likeable older couple. They get along beautifully, until Frank's flower bed is threatened. But they're all reasonable people, so surely a compromise can be found, right? Right?
Much Ado About Nothing (Mucho Rudio Y Pocas Nuecas)
by William Shakespeare

One Man Richard III
(in Spanish with English supertitles)

Concepcion by Mary Ann Rodgers
October 22-23 @ San Miguel Playhouse
El Salvador's civil war is an odd setting for a comedy, but absurdity can emerge in the direst of circumstances. The Miracle of Concepcion follows the Castaneda family as they vigorously attempt to hold onto their lives and life style as everything about them falls apart. Witnessing it all is their long-time servant, Concepcion, and her patron, Don Mario, who happens to be dead -- but is not gone yet!
Moscow! Moscow! (Idaho) by Robert Parsons
(based on Three Sisters by Anton Chekhov)
October 26-27 @ San Miguel Playhouse
What’s the cost of inaction? Are we destined to continuously repeat history? What are the rewards and curses of entitlement? Is compassion for the other still possible in the modern world?
Come join us as we explore these and other questions using Chekhov’s classic The Three Sisters in a new and modern adaptation by Symmetry company member Robert Parsons
