Blue Box

No pick of the day, instead here’s a heads up about a play called Blue Box  that will be running at Globe Theatre as part of its Sandbox Series Feb. 26-March 3. It’s a drama written and performed by Carmen Aguirre (pictured), and tells the story of a woman’s involvement in the Chilean underground in the 1980s, along with a later affair that the woman had with Chicano actor in Los Angeles. For ticket info call the Globe at 525-6400.

Aguirre currently lives in Vancouver. While she’s in Regina she’ll be participating in two other events. Feb. 27, she’ll be at the RPL Theatre at 6:30 p.m. to  introduce a screening of Quinceanera­ — a 2006 drama about Latin America rituals surrounding a girl’s 15th birthday. Then on Feb. 28 she’ll read from her book Something Fierce: Memoirs of a Revolutionary Daughter at the RPL Theatre from 5-6:30 p.m. You can register for that event by calling 777-6120.
