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

SUPPORT

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.

COVID Guidelines: Proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test test taken within 72 hours is required to attend this event, and face masks are required inside the theater. Please see the Scoundrel & Scamp Theatre’s COVID Guidelines For Audiences for more information.
