For complete calendar or events visit www.teatrostagefest.org PLAY DESCRIPTIONS Tercer Cuerpo (Third Wing) by Timbre 4 - Argentina The lives of five eccentric co-workers who want to find love but don't know how, crisscross in the third wing of an office that seems as out of reach as the characters who practically live in it. Timbre 4 productions are performed in Buenos Aires in Claudio Tolcachir's own living room, and the 30 eager people who line up nightly outside his home, must press buzzer (timbre) # 4 to view one of his intimate shows. Third Wing marks the return of the unique company that captivated TeatroStageFest 2007 audiences with The Omission of the Coleman Family, revealing once more its ironic take on the absurdity of everyday life. Friday, June 26 7:00PM Saturday, June 27 7:00PM Sunday, June 28 4:00PM In Spanish with English supertitles. 1 Hour 5 Minutes, No Intermission. Diciembre (December) by Teatro en el Blanco - Chile Christmas Eve, 2014. Chile, Peru and Bolivia are at war. A young Chilean soldier gets a 24-hour leave to celebrate with his pregnant twin sisters who are determined to seize the moment and convince him to act on their opposing views of the war. Will the brother defect or return to battle? The phrase "home for the holidays" takes a poignantly funny turn in this provocative, side-splitting political dark comedy where nothing is what it seems, and no one is entirely telling the truth. Teatro en el Blanco "hits its target" with this new co-production with Chile's renowned Santiago a Mil Festival. Friday, June 26 9:00PM Saturday, June 27 9:00PM Sunday, June 28 6:00PM In Spanish with English Super-titles. 1 Hour 15 Minutes, No Intermission.
