Destiny of Desire

By KAREN ZACARÍAS

FEB. 29 - MARCH 28, 2020
Marx Theatre

About

Directed by JOSÉ LUIS VALENZUELA

Burning passion, cunning deception and outrageous melodrama combine in this enormously entertaining homage to Latin American soap operas. A storm brews in the small town of Bellarica, Mexico, when two baby girls are born on the same night in the same hospital. One will have wealth and privilege, and the other will live in poverty. Yet the drama is bound to unfold when a former beauty queen switches the babies at birth in her lust for power. Eighteen years later, fate finds the two girls together again, prompting secrets to be revealed and lies to be unraveled. After all, nothing is impossible in Bellarica!

“[A] terrifically entertaining theatrical roller-coaster… A zany, funny delight.” — L.A. Times
“Karen Zacarias’ highly entertaining play, populated with so many hilarious and lovable characters and peppered with toe-tapping Latin music and spicy choreography, has an abundance of memorable moments to savor.” — Chicago Theatre Review


ADVISORY:
Destiny of Desire is suitable for adults and older teenage audiences. This Latin-American melodrama features everything there is to love about soap operas: forbidden romance, sexual content, plenty of plotting and scheming, and moments of overly dramatic violence.
