eSe Teatro: Seattle Latinos Take Stage, and The Central Heating Lab at ACT present "Passport"

Saturday February 26 and Saturday March 5th
eSe Teatro: Seattle Latinos Take Stage
present Gustavo Ott's "Passport"

One Play, Two Languages, Four Actors.  No Theater Ensemble Has Ever Attempted a Bilingual Presentation Like This.
eSe Teatro and The Central Heating Lab: on the Cutting Edge.

eSe Teatro: Seattle Latinos Take Stage, and The Central Heating Lab at ACT present a staged reading of Venezuelan Playwright Gustavo Ott’s dramatic piece entitled, Passport. 

Translated by Heather L McKay, directed by Arlene Martinez-Vickers, Passport will be performed bilingually (Spanish/English).

In this staged reading performed in Spanish/English, Eugene finds himself falsely imprisoned in a foreign country, surrounded by a language he can’t understand. His search for answers becomes a desperate journey to comprehend beyond language and cultural barriers.

En un país extraño con un idioma que él no entiende, un simple malentendido lleva a la detención de Eugenio. Una búsqueda por respuestas se convierte en un intento desesperado de comprender, a pesar de las barreras de idioma y cultural. 

The cast includes: Erwin Galan, Michael Blum, Gerald Alejandro Ford and Meg Savlov.
Gustavo Ott, playwright, screenwriter, novelist and director  has received many international awards.  

Passport responds to eSe Teatro’s mission to present contemporary pieces that represent the Latino experience to Seattle audiences, in English and/or Spanish.
