Havana’s formidable theater innovators Flora Lauten and Raquel Carrió are staging the greatest magical realism tale in Latin American literature—Juan Rulfo’s 1955 novel Pedro Páramo—just for Chicago. The story follows a son who returns home to meet his father and reveals how one man’s unchecked appetite destroys both everything he loves and the town that made him great.
