Teatro Paraguas presents two timely one-act romantic comedies with twists for Valentine’s Day.  

One is a classic, and one is unabashedly contemporary.

Typhoon, part of Teatro Paraguas' local playwrights series, is a 10-minute sketch by Alix Hudson. A silly Valentine's story originally created for  Ironweed Production’s memorable 2016 site-specific production Creating a Scene in a Restaurant, Typhoon makes its Zoom premiere at 7pm on February 12th. Roxanne Tapia directs the play, which features a 3-person cast (Miles Blitch, Alix Hudson, Cristina Vigil) and some optional audience participation (get your emojis ready). What begins as a heartfelt (and dare we say sappy?) dinner between a stockbroker and a marine biologist quickly evolves, thanks to an audience heckler, into something quite different. Perfect for a light-hearted evening on Valentine's weekend, join Teatro Paraguas for Typhoon.

A Sunny Morning is a light-hearted romp involving two octogenarians who meet by chance in a park. After a bit of barbed

but polite interchange — and a pinch of snuff, both come to life-altering realizations about their youth, and the strange twists and turns of fate.  A Sunny Morning premiered on February 23, 1905 in Madrid, Spain, and is the work of the brothers Joaquin and Serafin Alvarez-Quintero, popular playwrights of the time.  Argos MacCallum directs the play, which features Corinna MacNeice and Argos MacCallum as the old couple, and Isabel Gallegos and Carlos Alberto de la Torre as the servants. Teatro Paraguas launches the play on XERB.tv beginning on Valentine’s Day. The viewing is free, after a simple registration.

Both Typhoon and A Sunny Morning will be available for viewing on XERB.tv after February 14.
