Nafe Katter Theatre
It is said in Spain that the dead are always more alive than the day they were born. So it is for the presumed murder of Federico Garcia Lorca, Juan Luis Trescante Medina. 60 years after Lorca’s death, the aging fascist, Trescante, fights to hold onto the myth of a murder that defined his life. But in Spain, sixty years is little more than a breath, and a reckoning is all but inevitable.
Directed by Borad of Trustees Distinguished Professor, Gary M. English, this new play by UConn Associate Professor Michael Bradford investigates the unsolved murder of the playwright Garcia Lorca, the politics of the Spanish Civil war and the repression of art in times of civil unrest.
