When Gabriela awakens to find her husband Benito has returned from a military assignment, their lust and frustration reach a boiling point, sending the couple down a corkscrewing slide of marital strife, sexual tension, and hostility. A Cat, a Coyote, and The Moon help weave Rivera’s story in language poetic and grounded, sensual and sardonic, all against the sweltering backdrop of a barren summer wasteland.

Friday, January 9th—OPENING NIGHT
At Single Carrot Theatre, an opening night is an event in itself. After the 7:30PM performance, the audience is welcome to stay for pizza, cava, and conversation with the artistic team responsible for bringing References to Salvador Dali to life. The celebration will include a toast and remarks from Genevieve de Mahy, SCT’s artistic director.

Thursday, January 22nd—POST SHOW DISCUSSION
Casting Culture: A Discussion on Staging Race & Casting Practices
Casting for theatre comes with a multitude of challenges, one of them being casting race. Is it vital to cast actors that are the same race as the character? How are actors of ambiguous ethnicity cast? Is ethnicity as important as race? References to Salvador Dalí Make Me Hot presented itself with a few such challenges and Single Carrot Theatre invites the audience to ask questions, raise voices, and discuss one of the most pressing issues in theatre today.

Thursday, January 29th—POST SHOW DISCUSSION
