More than 150 people attended Tuesday’s production of “La Nona,” a comedy written by Argentine Roberto Cossa. Roslindale’s Escena Latina Teatro performed it in Spanish. Here’s a gallery of photos from a lovely night in Mozart Park.

The performance was organized by Hyde Jackson Square Main Street, a business and community development organization. And they had lots of help, including Hyde Square Task Force and several local business sponsors.

The play tracks the chaotic domestic life of one family, centered around the eccentric and always-hungry grandmother. For attendees with little or no Spanish, organizers handed out a four-page, scene-by-scene synopsis.

This is the second year that Hyde Jackson Square Main Street has hosted Spanish-language theater in Mozart Park.

And here’s a short video clip from Tuesday’s performance.
