De algún tiempo a esta parte by Max Aub in Williamsburg

William & Mary College hosts “De algún tiempo a esta parte,” a one-woman play by Max Aub, performed in Spanish by Esther Lázaro.

De algún tiempo a esta parte

  • At Washington Hall, Room 201, William & Mary College.
  • By Max Aub. Cast: Esther Lázaro.

De algún tiempo a esta parte chronicles the harrowing experience of a Jewish woman in the Vienna of 1938, before the onset of World War II. Emma, the protagonist, talks to her dead husband and tells him how she has become a victim and spectator of the changes that have been taking place, while at the same time recalling other happier times with him and their son Samuel.

Written in 1939 by the exiled Spanish author Max Aub, De algún tiempo a esta parte is considered one of the best monologues written in the 20th century. It is a profound denunciation of intolerance and the ideologies that lead to the exclusion of the “other.” Spanish actress and researcher Esther Lázaro has masterfully adapted and played Aub’s monologue in the theaters of Barcelona, Madrid, Mexico City, Paris, and Vienna, among others.
