The play, by Aristides Vargas, tells the story of the reunion of two sisters, and of inhabiting "a house/ country", a place that lets one feel rooted, but from which one also has to break free. Performance in Spanish.
Families inhabit houses. And in a family, like in a country, there is a place one loves in a strange way because it is safe as a tree that only grows in a certain soil. Are houses like trees? Should they be like nests? La edad de la ciruela presents the story of a tree, a plum tree that has witnessed the development of a family’s love, love that at the same time has suffered the fate of a prune. sisters who play the game of remembering, of getting together, of living, of parting. And this house also tells us stories about the desperate search for happiness, beyond death and a family’s curse. What is the purpose of telling the story? To free us from desperation.
The play will be followed by a discussion with the actors.
Event organized by the Spanish Department and sponsored by the CPGC and the Hurford Center for the Arts and Humanities.
