Teatro Prometeo presents the theater play Casa Ajena.
Fridays and Saturdays 8 p.m. and Sundays 5 p.m.
Casa Ajena marks the national premier of a bilingual version of the iconic Lisa Loomer play, Living Out. Ittells the story of the complicated relationship between a Salvadorian nanny and the American lawyer who employs her. The play explores the shared humanity between them…and the differences wrought by race, class and legal status. A stellar lineup has been cast to convey the range of experiences and emotions. The cast of renowned actors includes Alina Robert, Guelmarí Oppenheimer, Khotan Fernandez, Gabriela Vergara, Rosalinda Rodriguez, Christopher Millán, Debora Von Habsburg y Aniria Turney.
One does not have to stretch very far to find reflections within today’s headlines. But while thought-provoking and moving, the play is not preachy or melodramatic. As with the other works being presented this season, which touch upon issues from family rights to gentrification to diversity—subject matter is handled with subtlety, grace and even humor.
