Manuel Orjuela: You Should Have Stayed Home, Morons

Colombia

"Rodrigo García...creates texts that explode like bombs."
—Contemporary Performance

U.S. Premiere

Written by Rodgrio García
Colombian director Manuel Orjuela crafts a theatrical journey that takes audiences to four separate locations in downtown Los Angeles for a surprising and immersive experience. Orjuela dives into the city with a site-responsive staging of this text by Rodrigo García, founder of the legendary Madrid-based company La Carnicería Teatro and one of Europe’s foremost and provocative playwrights. With a new English translation by Andrea Thome, You Should Have Stayed Home, Morons travels from public pathways to private apartments, and back to the street, while bringing viewers into close contact with the works' important questions about parenthood, education and individual social responsibility.

 

RUN TIME: 105 minutes

NOTE: There is no late seating for this performance. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to the listed curtain time, as the audience will depart promptly.
