US Premiere: La Tía Mariela

October 3 – October 4, 2023 National Museum of Mexican Art

Join us at the National Museum of Mexican Art for the US Premiere of La Tía Mariela, written and directed by the iconic playwright, Conchi León. Presented by the Saas Tun Theater Company of Mérida, Yucatan, the play is part of the 6th Destinos Chicago International Latino Theater Festival.

About the Play:
After not seeing each other for quite some time, three primas are reunited by a phone call with terrible news: Tía Mariela has passed away. This hilarious story beautifully combines oral tradition with the folkloric music and dance of Yucatan to create an explosive dark comedy that serves as an introspective play about the feminine universe.

Presented in Spanish with English subtitles.
