World premiere of a new play (with video),
written and directed by Fred Curchack

Two couples take a dream vacation, a journey through Spain’s art, architecture, poetry, music and dance, and the wonders and horrors of its Christian, Muslim, Jewish, and Gypsy history.

ALHAMBRA is a hysterical - historical - tragical - comical - phantasmagorical – theatrical spectacle with acting, video, dance, music, rap, and visionary visual effects.

The play confronts our current global/national situation in the mirror of Spain from medieval times to now. 

UT Dallas theater professor Fred Curchack has written and performed seventy-nine original theatre pieces. His plays have received international acclaim:

“One of the Year’s Most Noteworthy Plays … imagination knows no limitations ... theatrical virtuoso.” - New York Times

“CRITICS’ CHOICE…writer, editor, director, musician, mask-maker extraordinaire" - Los Angeles Times

"Casts a spell of enchantment only Curchack could conjure. HE’S MAGIC.” - Seattle Times

"Genius ... masterpieces, all brilliantly performed ... great depth and great delicacy" - Dallas Morning News

Note: Viewer discretion advised due to mature subject matter, language, the use of strobe lights, and video of a real bull fight.

Free on Thursday.
