University Productions will be presenting The Imposter, an original play by Rodolfo Usigli. Set in 1938 Mexico, this piece focuses on Cesar Rubio, a man who has returned home in disgrace after an unsuccessful career as a history professor. When he is mistaken for a lost revolutionary hero who happens to carry his name, he takes advantage of the situation with unforeseen and dramatic consequences. In this piece that is regarded as the play that launched modern Mexican drama, the truth versus honesty and politics versus history intertwine to create a fascinating story.
Directed by Richard Edmonson, this production will be presented in the Albert L Jeffers Theatre on the Edinburg campus. The shows will start at 7:30 PM Wednesday through Saturday, April 10 to April 13 with a matinee on Sunday, April 14. A free panel discussion will follow the Sunday show.
All seats for all performances are fifteen dollars apiece. However, University Theatre subscribers will be admitted free with their subscriber cards on any night.
