The story begins with Professor Ivan Ivanovich Nyukhin, the husband of the owner of a music boarding school for young ladies. The Professor enters a room with the innocent intention of giving a lecture on the harmful effects of tobacco. As the disorderly lecture begins to unravel, he delivers an unpredictable speech wavering between pathetic, ridiculous, and nonconforming, leading him to reveal terrible evils of the soul.⁣

El daño que hace el tabaco is a comedic one-act monologue that allows the audience a brief escape from our current challenging times. Join us for this fantastic performance presented in a safe, outdoor environment. This performance is presented in Spanish. Tickets are non-refundable and cannot be exchanged. There is no late seating allowed.
