Actress Delfina Guzmán stars in this moving monologue about old age, solitude and death.


Outstanding Chilean director Álvaro Viguera brings this new text by Elisa Zulueta to the stage. Actress Delfina Guzmán plays Lupe, a 92-year-old woman who talks about old age, solitude and death. “If God’s in charge of all this crap, he should have figured out that we want to bow out early”, says Lupe, who tries to convince her daughter Lucía to help her end her own life. In a letter, she tells her dauhgter about the aches and pains caused by old age and how boring and trivial her life has become. She doesn’t want to carry on living and wants to make a dignified exit before things get worse. In a sad yet amusing story, Aliento sifts through memories, confessions from the past and the desolation of the present. Lupe is weighed down by physical decline, solitude and uselessness and, feeling that she’s hardly been able to decide anything during her lifetime, has now made a decision she can’t carry out on her own.
