CASA Readings: "Mother By Trade" by Griselda Gambaro
Hola, amigos!

Please join us for the third of this year's CASA Readings, Griselda Gambaro's "Mother By Trade".

Griselda Gambaro is an Argentine writer whose work often concerns the political violence in her home country that eventually developed into the Dirty War. A recurring theme is that of the "desaparecidos", specifically the many attempts to recover their bodies and commemorate them. Her novel, "Ganarse la muerte", was banned by the government because of its strong (and blatant) political message. Gambaro is Argentina's most celebrated playwright and was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1982, as well as many other prizes.

As well as a staged reading of the play, we will have a post-show discussion with translator Gwen MacKeith and Roberto Cavazos of CASA Festival.

Please remember that the play will be read in English and that this event is free to attend, although you should book to ensure a place.

Mother By Trade (De profesiĆ³n maternal)
by Griselda Gambaro - Argentina

A drama about abandonment and the self-imposed impossibility of love, both for others and for oneself. A cold and absent mother who has lost her capacity and will to give; a daughter who carries a profound pain in her soul that has been gestating for over twenty years. A reacquaintance, thousands of expectations and questions. A desperate battle to comprehend and obscure and disconcerting past.

Translated by Gwen MacKeith.

Directed by juanita Mora. Read by Viviana Lombardi, Silvana Montoya & Sally Mortemore.

CASA Readings are a collaboration between CASA Latin American Theatre Festival and Out Of The Wings.
