Trilogía “Sobre algunos asuntos de familia” / Family Matters
by La Maldita Vanidad Teatro (Colombia)
Written by Jorge Hugo Marín
One space. One day. Three plays. One brilliant experience.
This Autumn, we transform the iconic Rose Lipman Building in the heart of East London into modern-day Colombia. Come and discover a trilogy of dark, funny and disturbing plays about terrible family secrets from one of Colombia’s most exciting theatre companies. In this exclusive event, specially performed for CASA, see all three plays in a day and at the end of the night join the cast for a delicious Colombian dinner.
El autor intelectual / The instigator
Two brothers and their sister argue as to which one of them will have to move in with their ageing mother and look after her. Tensions rise, secrets emerge and things turn nasty. Meanwhile, you’re just outside, looking at them and listening in through the window of their own living room.
Los autores materiales / The perpetrators
Sat in the kitchen of their student flat, Sebas, Julian and El Negro are trying to come to terms with the fact that they’ve killed their landlord. What they’ve forgotten is that the girl who cleans the flat is coming and she has her own key. Feel how the tension grows in this dark intimate comedy inspired by Alfred Hitchcock’s “Rope”.
Como quieres que te quiera / How do you want me to want you
Alicia is getting ready for her fiesta de quince, the “coming of age” party that marks the moment she is to become a woman in the eyes of Colombian society. But the celebration might just be a little bit different to most given the family business.
