In his latest play, Nilo Cruz asks: What will we sacrifice in the name of love? A young woman named Marina reunites with her father Emiliano in his artistic home, populated by his worldly wise female companion Paquita and the irresistible young Moroccan Karim, whom father and daughter both fall for. Set in the south of Spain, Beauty of the Father invokes the ghost of Federico Garc?a Lorca, both with its lyrical language and as a character in a white linen suit who appears to Emiliano as he paints. The play's rhythms are infused with the spirit of the Andalusians-a people who sing their sorrows in the cante jondo-as Cruz once again creates poetry to the tune of unrequited love.
