Castillo Theatre is proud to present the American premiere of Even Under Bitterness under the direction of Munich-based theatre artist, Hans Melzer. Even Under Bitterness is an avant-garde, multi-media performance made up of poems written by our namesake, the Guatemalan poet and activist, Otto René Castillo. His poems are passionate, sometimes sad, often outraged by poverty and injustice.

Even Under Bitterness will be performed in English and German featuring German actress, Gabi Heller, and two Castillo actresses: Madelyn Chapman and Olivia Luna. The poems will be accompanied by improvised live music along with video projections.

Even Under Bitterness opens at the Castillo Theatre on May 6 and runs through May 15. Performances are Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 PM. Sunday, May 8 at 2:00 PM.
