 SYNOPSIS

The flat that the estate agent offers Sara has all the features she wants: low price, spaciousness, light and beautiful views. It only presents a small "inconvenience": the lady that owns the apartment will live in it until the day of her death. Lola (over seventy) has had two heart operations and, certainly, she will not last much longer. Especially if she continues smoking a pack a day and drinking as much as she can. Sara decides to buy the flat and wait. But we all know that events do not always unfold as planned.

REVIEWS

A hilarious comedy that will make you laugh from beginning to end. Miami Herald

Rubio presents a hilarious comic toy built for the sole purpose of making people laugh. And this is achieved by far; the audience burst out laughing from the start. Diario de Córdoba.

It’s a play that entertains with characters and situations clearly extracted of everyday life, whose affairs transcend the local framework. The importance of family life and the very definition of family as well as the prevalence of sex today, personal success and frustrations up to 40 years, are some of the universal issues discussed at length. The combination of seriousness, humor, depth and lightness make this play a well-balanced dramaturgical composition. El Nuevo Herald.

EL PRÍNCIPE DE MAQUIAVELO

MACHIAVELLI’S THE PRINCE

CHARACTERS

1 male character.

SYNOPSIS

Machiavelli wrote The Prince in 1513. Five centuries later, his words are still absolutely valid. Isn’t it frightening to think that, no matter how much time has passed, the rules of power are always the same? In these times of political upheaval, lies, corruption and abuse, take a look at the past can help us understand the present. Machiavelli’s clairvoyant analysis makes clear, once again, that the exercise of power requires maneuvers and decisions that are not always ethically appropriate, but could we live without them? A play that can not remain indifferent to any citizen who depend on the decisions of their leaders. Anyway, if we think for a moment… is there anyone who doesn’t depend on that?
PREMIERE: Spain (2015) Director: Juan Carlos Rubio. Cast: Fernando Cayo
