“Suspenseful and poignant” – the Washington Post
Premiers October 17th starring Colombian movie star Germán Jaramillo (“La virgen de los sicarios”) and the direction of renowned Colombian director Jorge Alí Triana as part of this play.
Performed around the world to enthusiastic critical and audience acclaim, Mario Diament’s CITA A CIEGAS is a compelling and riveting play about chance encounters.
An intricate puzzle of passions, destinies, and coincidences seduces audiences into a world filled with unrequited love, dangerous obsessions, and the thought of what-might-have-been. In the play, the central character, a blind writer becomes unwittingly entangled in the personal lives of four people with consequences for all involved.
Inspired by the literary world of the great Argentine writer Jorge Luis Borges who explored the illusion of time and space, and ventured into parallel worlds, the infinite, and “other” realities long before quantum mechanics became fashionable, CITA A CIEGAS takes on the kaleidoscopic concept of time to tell a story of love, passion and chance encounters.” –Stageplays.com
