El RetabLiLlo de Don Cristobal
An original translation of Federico Garcia Lorca's 1930 puppet show.
Lorca's writing infused themes of domestic violence, gender inequality, within a corrupt political environment. Pointless' adaptation reflects on the unique linguistic layers of being hispanic and bilingual in the US today. Written specifically as a Punch and Judy show, this production will bring to life the centuries old, brutally comedic style of performance that thrives on crude puppet violence.
