One of Mexico’s most iconic films of all time, “Sexo, Pudor y Lágrimas” (Sex, Shame, and Tears), comes to life in Austin in its original form: a stage play! Produced now by ProyectoTEATRO and written in the early 90’s by Antonio Serrano, the story follows two marriages on the brink of an emotional breakdown that are suddenly surprised by people from their past. “Sexo, Pudor y Lágrimas” uses snippets of laughter, confessions and psychological tensions to unpack the marital realities that hide behind wedding pictures and superficial dinner parties…flawed communication, infidelity, sexual fantasies and the loss of individuality. It’s a comedy you have got to see.

“The play was written 26 years ago and had to be revised if it was going to be brought back on stage,” Director Luis Ordaz Gutiérrez comments. “The script was very controversial for the times in which it was written because the topics were deemed taboo and intimate, but interestingly enough, the play falls short in 2017…society today is much more explicit, daring, and uncensored—so it was crucial to update the characters and their situations in order to make this project relevant and raw as it was back then.”

The show will play Jan. 20 – 29, 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 4 p.m. Sundays at at the Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center. Ticket prices range from $10-15.

Led by award-winning artistic director Luis Ordaz Gutiérrez, the play’s cast is Diego Villarreal, Karina Domínguez, Mario Ramírez, Yarisel Estrada, Antonio Medrano y Maribel Bello.
