Lakeside Little Theatre presents “The Madres,” by Stephanie Alison Walker and directed by Dave McIntosh, November 5-14.
Said one reviewer: “This play has it all – great drama, gripping dialogue, beautiful theatricality. Above all, it reveals the tragedy ideals bring to the innocent, ideals that ignore compassion. A message we need to hear over and over, Walker’s play shows simple people caught up in complex times.”
The cast is comprised of Liz O’Neill, Marsha Heaton, Jeff Kingsbury, Nicolas Cumplido and Angelica Guerra.
The curtain rises 7:30 p.m. on weekdays; Saturdays and Sundays are matinees at 4 p.m. There is no show on the Monday after opening night.
Tickets, 300 pesos, available at lakesidelittletheatre.com, and the LLT box office, 10 a.m. to noon on Wednesdays and Thursdays during the week before and the week of the show, as well as one hour before curtain for each show.
State mandated Covid-19 protocols will be in effect.
