Tallahassee Hispanic Theater presents its new production: Forever Yours, Julita, a play by Puerto Rican playwright Roberto Ramos-Perea. This play deals with important issues of artistic integrity, male/female roles in Latin American society, and Puerto Rico’s relationship with the United States. The play begins in 1914. Julia is 19. She has written her first book of poetry and is seeking recognition. That night she attends a party given by a well-known poet, Luis, who is celebrating an important prize he has won. Luis receives the young woman who gives him a copy of her book of poetry to obtain his opinion. A no-holds-barred relationship starts up between them: disciple, political enemy, rival poet and lover. Their relationship will continue through their lives until the end of the play in 1942.

The performances will be at the Monticello Opera House, November 17-18 at 8:00 p.m.

Inspired by the literary world of the great Argentine writer Jorge Luis Borges who explored the illusion of time and space, and ventured into parallel worlds, the infinite, and “other realities”, Blind Date takes on the kaleidoscopic concept of time to tell a story of love, passion and chance encounters.
