WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The novel El Coronel No Tiene Quien Le Escriba ("No One Writes to the Colonel") by Colombian novelist Gabriel García Márquez (100 Years of Solitude) has been adapted for this world premiere production. Written in 1956-57, while Garcia Márquez was living in Paris, El Coronel is the story of an impoverished, retired colonel, a veteran of Colombia's Thousand Days' War who still hopes to receive the pension he was promised 15 years earlier. The action is set during the period known as "La Violencia" in Colombia — years of martial law, rampant corruption, and censorship.

Note: The play is performed in Spanish with English subtitles via Simultext In-Seat Captioning System.
