About Labio de Liebre (The Lip of the Hare)
Following their acclaimed productions of Gabriel Calderón’s Mi Muñequita in 2015 and Uz, El Pueblo in 2016, Teatro Publico de Cleveland—CPT’s resident Latin American theatre ensemble—returns to the stage with a third Spanish language production in a magical and wildly dark comedy by Columbian playwright Fabio Rubiano Orjuela. Labio de Liebre (The Lip of the Hare) is a play about facing a shameful history. A former military man, Salvo, has committed atrocious acts against thousands of families. Years later, he is haunted by unearthly visitors – a troupe of half-animal/half-human ghosts from his violent past, including a boy with a cleft lip. The boundaries between victim and perpetrator blur in this courageous and poignant new play.
Labio de Liebre (The Lip of the Hare) will be performed in Spanish, with English subtitles thanks to the generous support of The City of Cleveland’s Cable Television Minority Arts and Education Fund.
**Due to graphic language, sexual references and situations, Labio de Liebre (The Lip of the Hare) is recommended for mature audiences (ages 16+).**
