Last Chance to see The Young Lady from Tacna

Last Chance to see The Young Lady from Tacna

By Mario Vargas Llosa
Directed by Jos Carrasquillo
Feb 6 - Mar 9, 2014

The Young Lady from Tacna closes this weekend on Sunday. Don't miss this last chance to see this critically-acclaimed, Helen Hayes-Recommended production by Nobel Prize Laureate Mario Vargias Llosa of Peru.

Directed by José Carrasquillo, the production is performed in Spanish with English surtitles and will run February 6 through March 9, 2014 at GALA Theatre, 3333 14th Street, NW.  Discounted parking is available at the Giant Food garage on Park Road, NW with GALA validation.

In this tale of how tales are born, we see the past through the imagination of Belasario, a writer trying to re-create the grand romance of Mamaé, a 100 year-old spinster aunt who ended her engagement with a dashing Chilean captain when she was young. La señorita de Tacna is a moving and humorous portrait of a family and its secrets in which memories and the present are interwoven.


Performances of La Señorita de Tacna are Thursdays through Saturdays at 8 pm, and Sundays at 2 pm in Spanish with English surtitles. The Noche de GALA and Press Opening is Saturday, February 8, 2014 at 8 pm, followed by a reception under the honorary patronage of the Ambassador of Peru Harold Forsyth and Mrs. Forsyth.
