Aurora Theatre stages the outrageous Divorciadas, Evangélicas y Vegetarianas, September 25-October 18
Spanish Language programming celebrates Gwinnett’s diverse culture
“Earlier this year, Aurora received a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts to deepen our relationship with the Latino community by expanding programing. Additionally, we received funding from BrandMortage to produce this show. I am very proud of our commitment to producing plays in Spanish,” said Producing Artistic Director Anthony Rodriguez. “As our community grows and changes, we need to work harder to make everyone feel welcome at Aurora. Teatro Aurora is one of the great ways we make the arts accessible for ALL people. ”
Internationally acclaimed and award-winning Venezuelan playwright, Gustavo Ott’s Divorciadas, Evangélicas y Vegetarianas has been performed in New York, Puerto Rico, Santo Domingo, Mexico, Costa Rica, Paraguay, Argentina, Poland, Brazil and Peru. Audiences will follow the antics of divorcée Beatriz, who is at her wits’ end; Gloria, a pushy vegetarian with tons of personal baggage; and the evangelical Meche, a menopausal widow. These friends will help each other through personal crisis… if they can keep from killing each other first!

More than just a pretty face with the right shoe size, this Cinderella is a contemporary figure living in a fairytale setting. She is a spirited young woman with savvy and soul who doesn't let her rags or her gowns trip her up in her quest for kindness, compassion and forgiveness. She longs to escape the drudgery of her work at home and instead work to make the world a better place. She not only fights for her own dreams, but forces the prince to open his eyes to the world around him and realize his dreams too.
