The teacher (La profesora)

A great lesson amidst chalks and laughters.


The Teacher is a successful play that had its world premiere in New York with a bilingual production.

América Alcalá is a teacher on the verge of retirement who turns to alcohol, terrified by the impending old age and loneliness. To top it off, there is a student in this class who particularly worries her: Daniela, a teenager who has started a transition process. Her behavior leaves much to be desired, and América doesn’t know how to handle her.

América seeks the support of Ortiz, Daniela’s father, and arranges a series of meetings aimed at improving Daniela’s behavior. Ortiz is a young, uneducated man who works in a supermarket’s fish market. Down-to-earth, he takes pride in his simplicity and lack of pretensions, but like América, he is very concerned about Daniela’s behavior. His daughter is also starting to cause problems at home.

During the initial meetings, the evident differences between América and Ortiz come to light. Ortiz cannot stand América’s airs of superiority, and she cannot understand Ortiz’s attitude towards life. At first, they constantly argue, but they soon realize they must join forces to achieve their common goal: helping Daniela cope with the challenges of adolescence.


RELEVANT INFORMATION: The play premiered in New York with a bilingual production and, a year later, premiered in Spain with great success.

The Teacher has won the ATI Award (Association of Independent Theater of New York), the HOLA (Hispanic Organization of Latin Artists) Special Recognition for its Theme of Inclusion and Education, and the Talía Award of New York.

It has received very positive reviews from both American and Spanish media and has been particularly well-received by the Hispanic community living in New York.
