La Carpa Aztlan presents: I Don't Speak English Only | Oct 12-28

Oct 19, 2017

The “Resistance was never so funny!” A Su Teatro classic that predicted and challenged a dying monocultural world to “go ahead and die” rises from the past to offer hope and laughter. La Carpa imagines a future world where all diversity is prohibited and any expression of the other has been forced underground. The play with music, is based on the Mexican “tent show” tradition: which emerged during the 1920-30s in small towns across the Southwestern United States and Mexico. Carpas were looked at as ”lower class” entertainment. Some of Mexico’s greatest performers came out of the carpa tradition including the man whom Charlie Chaplin called “the world’s greatest comedian,” Mario Moreno, better known as Cantinflas. Written and Directed by Anthony J. Garcia
