Main Dates & Location The Plays Pictures

Local artists team up to translate six masterpieces of the famous Spanish painter to the stage.  From the noble beauty of court life to the nightmarish visions of a cynical old man, “The Goya Plays,” like the painter, promise a scrumptious blend of genius and insanity.

Commedia Beauregard has returned to the world of fine art for another series of plays translated from paintings. This time we feature the works of Francisco Goya. Six locally & nationally recognized Twin Cities playwrights and six talented directors bring forth creations based on works such as: "The Colossus", "The Chinchillas", "Out Hunting for Teeth", "Celestina y Maja", "The Incantation", and "Clothed Maja" & "Nude Maja".


Poole, Baldwin Scripts Honored for Goya Plays

"Master Works: The Goya Plays" was a huge success, and the audience surveys have been tallied giving us the privilege of presenting honors to two of our playwrights.  Tom Poole's play, The Chinchillas and Trista Baldwin's play For Celestina and Maja on Balcony were selected by audience members as their favorite and the best translation, respectively.

The Chinchillas, directed by Michael Agnew, was selected as the Audience Favorite.  It starred Clarence Wethern and Michael Venske as actors on an absurd gig.  It also featured Kate Greenwood Gunther in a silent role.

For Celestina and Maja on Balcony, directed by Christopher O. Kidder, was selected as the play that best captured the essence of the painting upon which it was based.  Based on the painting "Celestina y Maja", the play revolved around an aging woman's perceptions of a young woman as she watches an opera.  It starred Katherine Engel and Kate Greenwood Gunther.
