Chronicle of a Death Foretold is set against the backdrop of a small Colombian town and explores the chain of events, false accusations, petty errors and biases that lead to the unnecessary, yet pre-determined murder of a young man. It is a tightly woven tale that reflects García Márquez's inimitable spin on "magic realism", exploring the antiquated moral codes, the conspiracy of silence, and the explosive issues of race and class that lead the story to its tragic ending.

"Crónica has been adapted several times, including as a 1987 film and a 1995 musical. It is generally acknowledged, however, that Repertorio Español's version, with its Colombian roots and its Latin American cast, comes closest to the vision of García Márquez. In Spanish or in English, it should be memorable." (full text)

Columbus Alive
"Accomplished evocation of mid-'50s small-town Colombia, steeped in almost feudal tradition and some haunting cumbia melodies, returns the play to its tropical roots." (full text)
