PLAY:

Enfrascada

By Tanya Saracho
October 19 - November 11, 2012, (Opening Night October 20, 8pm)

Young professional Alicia is devastated when her boyfriend leaves her and will do anything to get him back. So she and her girlfriends seek an unusual remedy. With the help of three practitioners of folk-magic, Alicia and her friends explore magic recipes, age-told traditions and ancient spells -- with jarring results!

ENFRASCADA spins a tale of passion, female friendships and the loco things we will do for amor.

Based on real exchanges with hundreds of women and their dealings with folk magic, this play explores one of the best-kept secrets in the comunidad Latina.

A Milwaukee premiere, ENFRASCADA is performed in English with a sprinkling of Español.

Performing at the Broadway Theater Center, 158 N. Broadway October 19 - November 11, 2012, call 414-291-7800 for tickets.
