Event Notes


A DOUBLE BILL! Saudade Written and performed by Vanessa Cardoso-Whelan Saudade is Portuguese for an emotional state of melancholic or profoundly nostalgic longing for a beloved yet absent something or someone. It is happiness and sadness together; nostalgic yearning for what is lost and the joy remaining for the fact that it existed. In this beautiful piece Vanessa Cardoso-Whelan explores her longing for a lost love - both a human one and her home in Brazil. and

ALTAR Written and performed by Santiago Guzmán A RCATheatre Production In ALTAR, less than a year has passed since Eugenio’s move from Mexico, but in that time, he has experienced deep love and deeper heartbreak when his new boyfriend inexplicably “ghosts” him. Looking to the traditional Mexican holiday Día de Muertos (The Day of The Dead), Eugenio decides to build an altar in the hopes that he will be able to summon his boyfriend’s ‘ghost’ to sort out the end of their relationship once and for all. Through the altar, Eugenio realizes he has been a ghost himself to his loved ones left behind in Mexico. Will setting up an altar be enough for Eugenio to forgive, forget, and love again? Can he heal the relationships with his friends and family far away?
