LatinUs Theater Company performs debut play in its new home   

     The LatinUs Theater Company is performing its debut play in its new home in the Pivot Center for Art, Dance and Expression at 2937 W, 25th Street. The play, “The House of Bernarda Alba” is by Federico Garcia Lorca (1898-1936), a Spanish poet, playwright and director killed by Spanish Nationalists at the beginning of the Spanish Civil War. Performances run from September 19 thru October 3rd.  A free performance for residents of the Clark-Fulton neighborhood was held on September 26th.

     “The House of Bernarda Alba” (La Casa de Bernarda Alba de Federico García Lorca) portrays the story of a controlling and repressive mother who forces her five unmarried daughters into eight years of isolation and mourning upon the death of her second husband. Sealed from the world within the walls of their home, tension and betrayal slowly build as the trapped sisters slowly turn on their eldest sibling, Angustias.  Directed by Cleveland-based visual artist John Rivera-Resto, along with a cast of more than 12 Latino actors, this adapted performance explores the complexity of Lorca’s dark drama. 

     LatinUs Theater Company, the first independent Latino theater in Ohio, is located in the Pivot Center for Art, Dance and Expression of Cleveland’s Clark-Fulton Neighborhood. LatinUs contributes to educating the Hispanic community by promoting and producing artistic and theatrical works in Spanish, honoring the cultural heritage and traditions of the Latin American population of Northeast Ohio.  For more information on LatinUs Theater Company visit
