Alexis Diaz de Villegas will direct and star in El Trac, a monologue written by Virgilio Piñera, at Dixon Place on Wednesday, September 7 at 7:30pm.

In this play, a man, who happens to be an actor, tries to discover himself by inventing his very own game. In his ensuing efforts he struggles with the masks which conceal and limit his true self. This game takes the form of a series of improvisational exercises in Spanish and English.

De Villegas has won numerous awards in his native Cuba, including the prestigious title of Distinguished Artist of National Culture in 2002. More recently he has appeared in several feature films, including as the hero Juan in the Spanish-Cuban zombie comedy, Juan de los Muertos, to be released internationally in 2011. El Trac will mark his New York debut.
