Jesús Urqueta, one of the most outstanding directors on the Chilean theater scene, is back with a play about loss and healing.

Is there a certain way of remembering? Can we reconstruct what we’ve already lived through? And find the answers that’ll save us in what remains? In Junto al lago negro - the latest production from renowned director Jesús Urqueta (Arpeggione, Prefiero que me coman los perros, Lear, el rey y su doble) - Else, John, Cleo and Eddie get together for the first time in years at the place their lives changed forever. Together, they’ll embark on the most difficult of exercises: seizing onto memories to try and look for answers and desperately restore what they’ve lost. This is the Hispanic American premiere of the play by renowned German author Dea Loher, who puts the characters in a difficult scenario of loss but who, rather amusingly, can only heal their wounds as a group. The cast of this production is the same one that took part in the acclaimed play Prefiero que me coman los perros, which won the Best Actress Award from the Circle of Art Critics for Nona Fernández’ performance. She once again shares the stage with Monserrat Estévez and Cristián Keim, as well as Moisés Angulo.
