Is it a condition, a nightmare, or just terra incognita? The daring, starkly-imagined, and rarely produced play Camino Real fuses elements from history and literature with a deeply psychological and symbolic exploration of experience. “Make voyages! Attempt them! There’s nothing else!”
In the play, a man named Kilroy shows up in flat broke and hungry in Camino Real, a small anonymous place with a dried-up well and unsavories aplenty. As the luster of his boxing career fades in this non-place, he finds that renegotiating his role in the world is far from easy even as he grapples with self-doubt and loneliness.
The student actors of Walden Theatre’s nationally-acclaimed Conservatory Program will be performing the play September 23 through October 2 on the Nancy Niles Sexton Stage at Walden Theatre. Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evening performances are at 7:30pm, and Saturday matinee shows are at 2:00pm.
Camino Real is the first play of Walden Theatre’s 2010-11 Season. Up-coming shows include The Learned Ladies by Moliere (Oct. 21-30), The Disappearance of Daniel Hand by Dan O’Brien (Nov. 11-20), and To Kill a Mockingbird adapted for the stage by Christopher Sergel from the novel by Harper Lee (Jan. 20-29).
