Clean/Espejos

Clean/Espejos

Written by CHRISTINE QUINTANA
Spanish Translation & Adaptation by PAULA ZELAYA CERVANTES

A Neworld Theatre Production in association with Western Canada Theatre

Co-world premiere with South Coast Repertory, Costa Mesa, California

About: The lives of two women from very different worlds collide in the illusionary paradise of a Mexican resort. Adriana, a hotel floor manager reeling from a family loss, has a chance encounter with Sarah, a Canadian wedding guest with a long-held traumatic secret—when their worlds collide on a fateful rainy night, both women are forced to face their past and all that they’ve tried to keep hidden.

Stunning, shocking, and surprisingly funny, Clean/Espejos intimately explores different perspectives of female solidarity, secrets, and survival across two languages. Performed in English and Spanish with dynamic surtitles.

Acerca de la obra: Las vidas de dos mujeres de mundos muy diferentes se mezclan en el falso paraíso de un resort mexicano. Adriana es una supervisora de piso de hotel y está procesando una pérdida familiar. Sarah es invitada en una boda y es atormentada por su pasado. Cuando sus caminos se cruzan por accidente, ambas mujeres deben enfrentar los ecos del pasado.

Clean/Espejos explora diferentes perspectivas de solidaridad femenina, secretos y sobrevivencia, de manera sorprendente y cómica. Esta es una obra bilingüe (español e inglés) y contará con subtítulos en ambos idiomas durante la producción.
