The debut of an original bilingual play. Incorporating English and Spanish, it is both the university’s first bilingual play and the first production staged in the newly renovated Cowles Auditorium. Written and directed by Naphtali Fields-Forbes, Whitworth visiting assistant professor of theatre, La Algajira tells the story of Central American villagers forced to search for a better life. The play was inspired by Fields-Forbes’ research trip to Central America in 2018, and the stories that were shared with her from the native community. March 6-7 and 13-14 at 7:30 pm; March 8 and 15 at 2 pm.
