A Northern Michigan University Mexican theater class will perform two plays starting at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 4, in room 2902 of the West Science building. They will be presented in Spanish, with English subtitles. Total run time for both is about 45 minutes. Admission is free and the event is open to the public.
The first play, titled "El censo" ("The Census") by Emilio Carballido, is a comedy about the relationship between the Mexican government and Mexican citizens in the 1940s. Following that will be "El viaje de los cantores" ("The Journey of the Singers") by Hugo Salcedo, an award-winning play based on a tragic story of 18 men who lost their lives trying to migrate to the United States.
Both of the plays are designed and performed by NMU students and directed by Professor Timothy Compton. The performances will be in Spanish, with English subtitles.
