The translation and adaptation of this rediscovered work will receive its world premiere on the Waller stage. A romantic comedy by 17th-century playwright Pedro Calderón de la Barca is given new life by award-winning playwright Caridad Svich. This gender-bending, provocative comedy asks all of us to believe in a little magic. Please note: Tickets stating “A Play in Development” remain valid for these performances.

This event is over.

In A Monster In the Garden, a wild child lives on an enchanted island. One day, he comes upon a young woman and experiences the tumult of love in his heart for the first time and sets out in its pursuit.
