The New Color of Theatre: Bernie’s Apt

eSeTeatro/ACTLab presents Bernie’s Apt directed by Julie Beckman

Theatre Puget Sound is dedicated to diversity, equity, and inclusion in performing arts and administration. Since 2010, eSeTeatro has been honoring self-definition and inclusion on Seattle stages. Rose Cano‘s contemporary adaptation of The House of Bernada Alba (Federico García Lorca) is a powerful examination of the real lives of Latina women in the United States.

May is National Foster Care Month, intended to bring awareness to the current state of foster care for children and teens. Three characters in Bernie’s Apt are in the system – two have aged out – and share an apartment with Bernie and her biological daughter. We are witness to their parallel chances for success and destruction, as they are forced to learn how to survive in a system stacked against them. Performed in 30% Spanish and 70% English, this latest collaboration with ACTLab is a valuable opportunity to see the new color of Seattle theatre.
