Event Details

The age-old saying goes that 'all is fair in love and war,’ and that could not be truer in this dark, funny, and whimsical examination of perilous passion by the late, great master playwright Maria Irene Fornes (1930-2018), author of more than 40 plays. First staged in 1963 in San Francisco by the esteemed director Herbert Blau, the play was so successful that it was quickly anthologized in Arthur Ballet’s Playwrights for Tomorrow. This rarely staged gem brims with traces of Samuel Beckett's absurdism, Oscar Wilde's wit, and Off-Off-Broadway's camp style.

Tango Palace will resonate with anyone who's ever tangoed with a tumultuous lover and lived to tell. Visit Thinking Cap Theatre on to register for free public programming that complements this main stage production, including talkbacks with the director and cast, Fornes and Tango scholars, and audience tango instruction.
