The Capitol Hill Library and the Washington Ensemble Theatre will host a preview performance of the world premier of The Hunchback of Seville by playwright Charise Castro Smith on Saturday, June 14th from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. in the Capitol Hill meeting room. After the performance, the play’s designers and cast will discuss the process of staging the play with the audience.
Hunchback is described as “a vividly naughty and hilariously bizarre tale set in Seville in the year 1504. Combining the madcap sense of humor of Monty Python and the poetic grandeur of Shakespeare, The Hunchback of Seville is a knee slapping, anti-colonialist romp examining how our future was sculpted long ago.”
The play is directed by Jen Wineman, who is based in New York, and is also a choreographer. So, if you’re in the mood for some fun, free, entertainment, come and join us at the Capitol Hill branch on June 14th!
