WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Mario Vargas Llosas' critically-acclaimed LA Fiesta Del Chivo (The Feast of the Goat), adapted by Jorge Ali Triana and Veronica Triana. Directed by Jorge Ali Triana, is the story of General Rafael Leonidas Trujillo, who subdued the Dominican Republic in a cruel dictatorship from 1930 - 1961. The story is told by Urania -a New York lawyer whose father was part of Trujillo's Ministry- who returns to the Dominican Republic after 35 years; by the band of conspirators who plan his assassination, and through the thoughts of the dictator himself. "...the set design, costumes, and cast collude with the script to create scenes of haunting vividness..." - The New Yorker. Presented in Spanish with live English translation.
