Join us for our next meeting as we read the work of Brazilian playwright Nelson Rodrigues. Nelson Falcão Rodrigues (August 23, 1912 – December 21, 1980) was a Brazilian playwright, journalist and novelist. In 1943, he helped usher in a new era in Brazilian theater with his play Vestido de Noiva (Wedding Dress), considered revolutionary for the complex exploration of its characters’ psychology and its use of colloquial dialogue. He went on to write many other seminal plays and today is widely regarded as Brazil’s greatest playwright. The volume we will read from contains brand-new translations of the plays Wedding Dress; Waltz No. 6; All Nudity Will Punished; Forgive Me for Your Betrayal; Family Portraits; Black Angel and Seven Little Kitties. We will read selected excerpts. Registration is required.
