You Should Have Stayed Home, Morons

RADAR LA 2013 / with support from Center Theatre Group

by Rodrigo Garcia / translated by Andrea Thome / directed by Manuel Orjuela

Director Manuel Orjuela (Columbia) works with a local cast and company to premiere the English-language translation of ¡Haberos quedado en casa, capullos! by Rodrigo Garcia (Spain) and translated by Andrea Thome (New York). Last seen at Bogotá’s El Festival Iberoamericano de Teatro, Orjuela’s bold site-responsive staging takes an intimate audience through four sites in Downtown Los Angeles, as Garcia’s text raises important questions about parenthood, education, and individual social responsibility.

Travelling from scene to scene, public pathways to private apartments, and back to the street- You Should Have Stayed Home, Morons is surprising and immersive, with text by one of Europe’s foremost anarchistic playwrights.
