WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Caffeine Theatre Company presents Dona Rosita, The language of the Flowers, Lorca's whimsical and poetic portrait of 1900's Spain which comes alive in a new translation of a warn yet heart-rending drama of lost love, hopeful choices, and passing time. Rosita weathers a long engagement in the house of her flower-obsessed uncle, lace-obsessed aunt, and meddling housekeeper. As time passes, a stream of comic visitors reflects the technological advances of the early twentieth-century, as well as the stagnant cultural attitudes that trap women in an unchanging society. This rarely-performed play uses poetry to evoke a moment in time in a lost Granada.
