Theatre Y is proud to present the English language premiere of MALAGA (Or The Inner Ear) by Lukas Bärfuss, co-directed by Melissa Lorraine and Héctor Álvarez.
"Funny, tragic, grotesque," MALAGA (Or The Inner Ear) is a black comedy and a moral thriller asking why it’s so hard to do the right thing. When separating parents Michael and Vera both need to get away for the weekend, the banal hunt for their daughter's caretaker welcomes catastrophe that will not be governed. Theatre Y’s voyeuristic staging invites its audience into the pot for a disturbingly funny slow boil.
MALAGA (Or The Inner Ear) opens November 1st and runs through December 16th with performances every Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evening at 7:30pm. There will be a special Industry Night performance on Monday, November 26th. There will not be a performance on Thanksgiving, Thursday, November 22nd.
All performances will be held at Theatre Y's Lincoln Square home, The Ready, at 4546 N. Western Ave, just 2 blocks south of the Western Brown Line stop. MALAGA (Or The Inner Ear) is presented FOR FREE to the community thanks to the FREE THEATRE MOVEMENT.
