Students will perform original comedies in Spanish, which they have adapted from four classic plays dating 1806-1933, on Wednesday, April 18, 5-6 p.m., in Mago Hunt Center, according to Lora Looney, international languages and cultures. All are welcome to attend. As part of the class Nation & Identity in Spanish Theater, students scripted one-act plays around the theme of “Prom Night 2018” with visiting playwright Emilio Williams, to poke fun at literary icons like Don Juan and the Maiden. Paradigms that students gently mock include triangulation and male honor, marrying for money, seduction at any cost, as well as rigid constructs of female identity. A final course assignment, this performance is funded by the Beckman Humor Project.
