A playwright gets locked in a theater after the rest of the people have left. Alone among the props from several plays, he comes across characters from the past, who wander around his memory looking to be resurrected and gain new life from moments of comedy and tragedy. The events of an already-distant September 11 and the emblematic figure of Salvador Allende - who carried the dreams of the people with him on his quest for justice and freedom – start to surface.
Premiered by Teatro Aleph in Paris in 1996, this play – written by the company’s founder, Oscar Castro and directed by the now deceased director of Egyptian origin Adel Hakim – has been brought back to the Chilean stage by Teatro Aleph Chile. It’s directed by Gabriela Olguín, has a Chilean cast and will be performed at the Sala Juieta, the company’s venue in La Cisterna, Santiago.
