Ayelen written and directed by Gilda Monreal
Criminal Theatre is proud to announce it’s involvement in the development of Gilda Monreal’s stunning Ayelen, under the mentorship of Rosa Laborde. Returning after its smash success at SummerWorks 2015 and Caminos 2015, Ayelen’s story takes place in an unnamed land governed by corruption and absolute power. In a den of iniquity, where lost souls attempt to steal her essence, her truth and her life, Ayelen’s relentless perseverance will transform the underground world forevermore.
