Award-winning Princessas Desesperadas Director Ramiro Daniel brings his stage production of “Que no se culpe a nadie de mi muerte” (“Do not blame anyone for my death”) to Incanto beginning October 7th for a limited run. Written by Humberto Robles and starring actress Jazmín Betsabé, this tragic/comedic monologue, presented in Spanish, is the story of a thirty-year-old woman who waits for a phone call to prevent her pending suicide. During her wait, she examines the different people and various personalities who have influenced her to come to this difficult decision. She reflects on her life as a girl, a daughter, a granddaughter, a sister, and as half of a couple. All of these relationships represent important facets of her life, as well as the problems she has faced along the way, including loneliness, difficult family relationships and sexual abuse. Will the phone finally ring to convince her to give up the idea of taking her own life?
