Men for all sea­sons: Parted Wa­ters

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

In Parted Wa­ters, three gen­er­a­tions of His­panic men from Truchas must con­front the chang­ing cul­ture in­side and out­side their fam­ily. Rey­naldo is a farmer and may­or­domo of the lo­cal ace­quia, while his son has built a high-tech ca­reer in Al­bu­querque, and his grand­son, a hy­drol­o­gist, is run­ning for state of­fice against an Ashke­nazi Jewish woman who re­veals her op­po­nent’s crypto-Jewish roots after he dis­par­ages her cul­ture dur­ing a de­bate. Teatro Paraguas staged a full pro­duc­tion of Parted Wa­ters, which is writ­ten by Robert F. Ben­jamin of Los Alamos, in 2010. At 2 p.m. on Satur­day, Nov. 5, and Sun­day, Nov. 6, Teatro Paraguas presents a staged read­ing of Parted Wa­ters, di­rected by Cather­ine Don­avon, at its stu­dios (3205-B Calle Marie), fea­tur­ing Ar­gos MacCal­lum, Alix Hud­son, El­izas Gal­le­gos, and Jonathan Har­rell. Tick­ets are $10 at the door and can be re­served at 505-424-1601. — Jen­nifer Levin
