Natalia will be playing the lead role of Dorothy in Mitchel Civello's new play The Bodies of Strangers and the Most Oppressed of All.
The play is adapted from two chapters of New Yorker magazine staff writer Larissa MacFarquhar's nonfiction book Strangers Drowning: Grappling with Impossible Idealism, Drastic Choices, and the Overpowering Urge to Help. The book profiles people who lead extremely ethical or altruistic lives, often at the expense of their own life. One chapter is about Aaron Pitkin, who decides to devote his life to easing the pain and suffering of chickens. The other chapter is about Dorothy Granada, who moved to Nicaragua in the 1980s to open a women's clinic.
Performances August 1st, 2nd & 3rd
