Detailed Information:

The story of a man whose desire for absolute power poisoned his humanity and terrorized a nation.

TEATRO CÍRCULO, one of the leading bilingual Latino theatre companies in New York City, presents ‘La caída de Rafael Trujillo’ (The Downfall of Rafael Trujillo) by award-winning playwright Carmen Rivera and directed by award-winning director Cándido Tirado. This play delves into the last phase of the life of the controversial ruler of the Dominican Republic who governed his country with an iron fist for more than 30 years.

Carmen Rivera, regarded as one of the most prolific U.S. Latina playwrights, explains, “This play reflects on how so many Latin American people as well as continental Spaniards have survived the trauma and violence of dictatorships, it speaks of the remarkable resiliency of these communities and how they have committed to move forward in the spirit of democracy despite the enormous challenges they faced in their respective societies.”

‘La caída de Rafael Trujillo’, features a formidable stellar Latino cast: Iván Goris (as Johnny Abbes), Johary Ramos* (Dr. Jesús de Galíndez, Porfirio Rubirosa, Senator, Soldier), Amneris Morales (as Doña María, wife of General Trujillo), Fernando Contreras* (as Don Paco Escribano), Erick González* (as Joaquin Balaguer), Bill Blechingberg (as Diplomat), Altagracia Nova (as the lover of General Trujillo) and in the lead role of Trujillo, José Cheo Oliveras. *Appears through the courtesy of Actors’ Equity Association

Assisting direction and Costume design by Eliana Michelle Yost, Lighting design by Omayra Garriga Casiano, and Set design and Props by Israel Franco Müller.

Performed in Spanish with overtitles in English, ‘La caída de Rafael Trujillo’ is part of Teatro Fest NYC 2023, a festival of the Alliance of Teatros Latinos of New York.

“In La caída de Rafael Trujillo, about the rise and fall of the notorious dictator, Carmen Rivera courageously brings us face to face with the horrors of state violence and terror so that we may yearn and fight for JUSTICE.” – Iris Morales, Activist, Filmmaker, and Publisher
