The Amazing, Fabulous, and Spectacular Untruths of Juan Garcia

translated and adapted from LA VERDAD SOSPECHOSA by Juan Ruiz de Alarćon by Kathleen Culebro

JULY 22 & 24, Spark Fest

About the play: When Juan Garcia returns home to Oaxaca after years at the university in Mexico City, he’s ready to make an impression and take over as the fanciest, smartest, richest man in town. Never mind that he’s none of those things; he plans to say whatever it takes to impress everyone—particularly the lady he has set his sights on (whose identity he has gotten completely wrong). But the shop owners want to be paid, the servants are tired of working day and night and eventually the truth is going to come out.

 

This event is a part of Spark Fest, our annual Summer celebration of groundbreaking and exciting new art.

 

This is a developmental reading, meaning you’ll watch performers act from the script. This reading is the culmination of playwright, director, and actors spending time reading and rehearsing this play, making changes, and presenting to the public for further feedback. You are part of the process!
