Repertorio Español will mark its 50th anniversary 2017-18 season with a roster of plays that demonstrate the company's ongoing commitment to presenting works that represent the diversity of its 50-year canon.

The company's season begins with the U.S. premiere of 17th-century Spanish playwright Ana Caro's comedy Valor, Agravio y Mujer (October 27-May 10), directed by Leyma López and designed by Leni Méndez. Throughout November, Repertorio Español will then present a series of readings of five plays written by female Spanish playwrights of the 17th century.

Next, the novel El Coronel No Tiene Quien Le Escriba by legendary Colombian novelist Gabriel García Márquez has been adapted for a world-premiere production, beginning February 23 and continuing on to join the rotating rep thereafter. The play has been adapted and will be directed by Jorge Alí Triana.

Finally, Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Nilo Cruz will debut his newest work Exquisita Agonía in this world premiere production with previews beginning April 21 prior to joining the company's rotating rep thereafter. The work is described as "a love story that explores a middle-aged woman's obsessive quest to find love with a young man who is transformed by the gift of life when he receives a new heart."
