News   Adamson's All About My Mother Makes Spanish-Language Premiere in Mexico City
 
All About My Mother, Samuel Adamson's stage adaptation of Pedro Almodovar's Oscar-winning film, makes its Mexico City (and Spanish-language) debut April 14 at the Teatro de Los Insurgentes.

Fracisco Franco directs an 18-member cast that features Margarita Gralia, Ana Claudia Talancon, Lisa Owen, Aejandra Bogue, Ilse Salas and Silvia Mariscal.

According to press notes, "Owen plays Manuela who, following the tragic death of her beloved teenage son Esteban (Juan Pablo Gil), travels in search of the father she never knew. But before she can exorcise her guilt, she gets caught up in the lives of three women; Agrado (Bogue), a long-lost transvestite friend; Sister Rosa (Talancón), a young nun in search of love; and Huma Rojo (Gralia), the famous actress her son so admired. Just as Manuela's life begins to have meaning again, her son's father returns and her journey of discovery and forgiveness comes full circle."

The creative team includes set designer Jorge Ballina, costume designer Eliose Kazan and composer Alberto Iglesias.

Adamson's adaptation premiered at the Old Vic Theatre in London in 2007 and has been performed in Budapest, Copenhagen, Vienna and Stockholm. Other plays include Breakfast at Tiffany's, Mrs. Affleck, Southwark, Grace Note and Some Kind of Bliss.
