Transformaciones (Transformations), consists of three plays that portray unexpected changes in characters' lives through fantasy and imagination. "Ventanilla de patentes" ("Patenting Destiny: A Tale of Two Shoes"), a 2008 play by Spanish playwright Charo González Casas, introduces an inventor who has created shoes that can lead the wearer to his/her destiny, although with unforeseen consequences. In his 1956 play, "Historia del hombre que se convirtió en perro" ("The Man Who Turned into a Dog"), Osvaldo Dragún criticizes the economic conditions in his native country of Argentina; the unemployed protagonist is forced to accept a job as a guard dog for want of better options. Finally, Spanish playwright José Cedena satirizes e-relationships in "Novios de Internet" ("Internet Sweethearts", 2006), as his characters' on-line identities do not correspond to reality. Join us as the vicissitudes of fate, exterior circumstance, and personal choice transform lives and change futures.
