The Big Deal: Cara Mia Theatre Presents De Troya

by Gila Espinoza 19 Apr 2017 8:32 AM

Cara Mía Theatre’s upcoming production will be “De Troya” by Caridad Svich.  Not only is this a world premiere production but it will also be the first play performed at the newest performing arts venue in Oak Cliff – the Arts Mission Oak Cliff – the refurbished former Winnetka Congregational Church on Windomere.

“De Troya” is a mash-up of a ghost story, a mythic urban fable and a cracked fairy tale for a contemporary world. Mara rescues a mysteriously wounded girl on the riverbank while her two aunts worry their niece will disappear from the violence-ridden city without a trace. On the other side of the barrio, the nostalgic Horacio drives his restless grandson Gusty out of the house with another story from his childhood. Wanting more for their lives than their families and their city can give, Mara and Gusty meet on the edge of the city to confront the mystery of an unknown and wild forest.
