From Obie Award-winning playwright José Rivera comes a timeless look at humans in transition. Sonnets for an Old Century, is a flexible grouping of “little songs” full of sound and fury--sometimes love poems, sometimes laments, always meditations on human existence.
A diverse cast of actors speak their truths, “make their statements,” and “give their side of the story,” reflecting on the messy, melancholy, glorious and joyful complexities of what it means to be human in an increasingly chaotic world. Steeped in Rivera’s hallmark magically realistic and expressionistic style, this remarkable piece of theatre reminds us that “our words go out into the universe…like rain,” so in the often dizzying disorientation of transitional times, we must be mindful of the echoes that we leave behind.
