Milwaukee Chamber Theatre’s dynamic 2021-2022 season continues with Cuban American playwright, educator and actor Melinda Lopez’s play, Mala, Jan. 21-Feb. 13 at Studio Theatre.
The directorial debut of MCT Artistic Director Brent Hazelton, the 70-minute Mala, (a title meaning “bad” in Spanish) stars Milwaukee actor Rána Roman and examines the fragile relationship between a mother and daughter at a critical time in the mother’s life. With its minimal set pieces, Mala instead focuses on emotionally powerful language tinged with pathos and occasional humor.
“Through Mala, she offers a distinctly Latin perspective on what it means to be caretaker, family member, and human, and she roots all of her work in her personal mission to create complex Latina characters and put them center stage,” said Brent Hazelton, Artistic Director for Milwaukee Chamber Theatre.
