LaMicro Theater presents Escena Sur: Plays and Memory, June 9 at Instituto Cervantes

LaMicro Theater will kick off Escena Sur: Plays and Memory, a series of public staged readings, that will explore the subject of human rights and dictatorship in collaboration with the Historical Memory Project at John Jay College. Tuesday June 9, 2015 we begin at Instituto Cervantes with Cartas de Amor a Stalin (Love Letters to Stalin) by Spanish playwright Juan Mayorga. “On 18 April 1930, the Russian writer Mikhail Bulgakov received a personal phone call from Stalin. The two men talked about the censorship of Bulgakov’s work, but ultimately nothing was resolved. Cartas de amor a Stalin (Love Letters to Stalin) imagines the devastating effects of that phone call on the writer, as it explores the complex relationship between power and art.”
