Erasmo is a tragic romance written in verse that follows the life of a young girl named Hortensia, daughter of the wealthiest man in town, who is considered cursed by the people in her town due to her lopsided mouth. Individuals with this “disfigurement” are considered to be slanderers who cannot keep secrets and, instead, repeat everything they hear. Though Hortensia longs to be accepted by her fellow townspeople and to possibly find love, she is shunned. Hortensia finally finds love in a field hand, Erasmo, who works on her father’s land. Her parents and her only friend, Agalia, warn her that love could never work between a poor man and a rich woman, like herself, and that he is probably unfaithful. While Hortensia starts suspecting Erasmo, murders start occurring daily in the town. Characters then set on an emotional journey to uncover the truth and are very surprised at what they find. Suggested donation $2-$3 Show times: 3/29 @ 7pm 3/30 @ 7pm 4/1 @2pm
