The wise neighbour woman tells us he’s an angel. The priest says he’s an imposter. Pilgrims flock to see him, hoping to be healed by him, hoping for a gawp. They leave with something different than what they expected.
Adapted from Gabriel García Márquez’s Un señor muy viejo con unas alas enormes, Collapsing Horse bring this classic piece of magical realism to the stage in search of its beautiful, strange, emotional richness.
Winning the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1982, the Colombian novelist and journalist Gabriel García Márquez is known for his critically acclaimed works of magic realism. He is best known for his novels, such as One Hundred Years of Solitude (1967) and Love in the Time of Cholera (1985).
