2666 | February 6 – March 13, 2016 | In the Owen
This epic adaptation of Roberto Bolaño’s internationally acclaimed novel is a not-to-be-missed theatrical event. A soaring adaptation of Chilean-born author Bolaño’s masterpiece,2666 begins with a group of hapless European academics hot on the trail of an elusive author—a search that leads them into the dark heart of a Mexican border city where the murders of hundreds of women remain unsolved. This story gives way to a panoramic portrait of the 20th century that spans more than 100 years and jumps from Spain to Mexico to Germany and beyond, illuminating the power of art to reflect and transform the world. An unflinching look at the nature of evil, 2666 is an ambitious new work unlike any other theatrical experience. Note: the approximate running time of 2666 is five hours. 2666 is made possible by a generous grant from The Roy Cockrum Foundation.
