Arizona Translates! Before the German’s Here: A Staged Reading and Talkback

November 12, 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm


Friday, November 12, 7:30-9:30pm

In-person event: Scoundrel & Scamp Theatre, The Historic Y, 738 N 5th Ave, Tucson, Arizona 85705

ALTA has partnered with the Scoundrel & Scamp Theatre in Tucson to present the winner of the 2021 Plays in Translation Contest. Before the German’s Here by Marta Barceló, translated by H.J. Gardner, was selected from among 20 translated play excerpts submitted to ALTA.

Juliá has just been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. Suddenly her life has been thrown into a blaring state of imminence. She knows now, her biggest enemy is time. Juliá faces her family, her past, and herself, as she races the ever-ticking clock to live her life to the fullest, before her own mind betrays her. A vitalist play that transmits a glimmer of hope in the face of irreversibility and that speaks to us about choice, identity, and courage.

Tickets are $15, or free for ALTA44 conference registrants. Learn more and reserve your ticket on the Scoundrel & Scamp Theatre’s website.
