La Strada tells the story of a frail and innocent young woman, Gelsomina, sold to a heartless man, Zampanó, who works as a traveling showman. She joins him on the road as a part of his act, enduring physical and emotional pain along the way. Trouble erupts when the pair joins a traveling circus, where they meet a clown who secretly falls in love with the woman. What will happen when Zampanó realizes the clown's intentions towards Gelsomina? Will she stay with him, even if that means further enduring his maltreatments?
Oscar-winner for Best Foreign Film in 1956, La Strada is a timeless masterpiece that will be brought, for the first time, to the New York theatre scene. This production is the result of a collaborative work between IATI, one of the most prestigious Hispanic theatres in New York, and a Spanish artistic company also named La Strada, whose goal is to build a cultural bridge between Spain and the US.
