Nathan Payne, Ruth Watt, Vero Maynez, and George Watt.

On April 9, Vero Maynez and Nathan Payne, two Berkeley-trained actors, movingly interpreted excerpts from the Spanish Civil War correspondence between Lincoln volunteer George Watt and his wife Ruth. Stage-directed by ALBA’s Peter Glazer and presented by María Hernández-Ojeda, the event brought the online audience to tears.

The performance was based on a script by Dan and Molly Watt, who joined in the Q&A afterward. The Watts have made the entire script available for educational purposes through ALBA’s web page, where you will also find a recording of the event.
