Directed by Cándido Tirado

After seven years, Teatro Círculo brings back La caída de Rafael Trujillo. Its author Carmen Rivera, opens a window to the complex psyche of Rafael Trujillo Molina, the controversial ruler of the Dominican Republic who ruled his country with an iron fist for more than 30 years. 

From April 14 to April 30, 2023

Performed in Spanish with Overtitles in English

At 36th Street Chain Theatre, 3rd Floor

This play portrays a series of events–internal uprisings, betrayal, international pressures, and political intrigue, as well as the personal failures that led to the downfall of Rafael Leonidas Trujillo Molina.

Delving into the last phase of Trujillo’s life, the play, based on historical facts and punctuated with Rivera’s inimitable creative narrative, tells a moving story of a man whose desire for absolute power poisoned his humanity and terrorized a nation.
