A daily rundown of live entertainment in and around San Marcos tonight, compiled by Mercury Scene Editor Hap Mansfield and our content partners at San Marcos Tonight.
“Yerma” (which means “barren” in Spanish) focuses on a childless woman living in rural Spain. Frederico Garcia Lorca’s (pictured) play, being staged by Texas State tonight, explores gender roles and the dynamics of both personal and cultural expectations. The play’s somewhat incendiary inferences about conventionality was one of the reasons Lorca was executed during the dark years of the Spanish civil war (1936-39). It was forbidden to speak of his death during Franco’s regime although he is now regarded as the premier Spanish poet of the 20th century. Tonight’s performance is directed by Deb Alley. The play was translated by Michael Dewell and Carmen Zapata. Look for Lorca’s references to the elements of earth, water, air and fire and revel in his well-place words. You’ll have plenty to discuss after this thought provoking play.
