Coriolano by William Shakespeare

Coriolanus by William Shakespeare


In the ancient Republic of Rome, following a famine, the people, or commoners, rebel against the patricians, the ruling class. In response to their protests and after a meeting of the people with the aristocrat Menenio, the patricians grant the people two representatives (tribunes) in public affairs, a decision that provokes the ire of the proud patrician military officer Gaius Marcio who feels nothing but contempt for the lower classes. At that moment, war broke out with a neighboring Italian tribe, the Volsci, led by Gaius Marcio's great rival, Tulio Aufidio. The Volscians are defeated and Rome takes the Italian city of Corioles thanks to the heroism of Marcio. In recognition of his great feats, at the urging of his mother Volumnia's recommendations, Cayo Marcio is given the name Coriolano.

Upon his return to Rome, Coriolano is welcomed by a hero, and the Senate prepares to appoint him consul. In order to obtain this position, according to custom, Coriolano has to go out to ask for the votes of the commoners, a task to which he reluctantly undertakes. At first, the common people are willing to give him their votes, but later they reverse their decision at the insistence of the tribunes, Brutus and Sicinio who consider Coriolano an enemy of the people. Coriolano is unable to control his wounded pride and in a fit of fury he questions the very sovereignty of the people. Brutus and Sicinio declare him a traitor to the Roman State and Coriolano is condemned to exile.

El Eunuco of Terencio

El Eunuco by Terencio


Imagine yourself in Athens. A fiery young man with raging hormones. He falls in love with a slave. The slave belongs to a courtesan. The courtesan has a lover. The lover is the elder brother of the fiery young man, who wants to give him a gift. To the courtesan. So she buys her a eunuch. But she hasn't given it yet. The young man finds out. About the gift, about the eunuch. And, like accessing the courtesan's house to be able to make the slave fall in love, it is not an easy task, she decides to impersonate, replace him. To the eunuch.

¿Can you imagine it? Imagine it.

And, to all that, now add a servant who does not want, and a servant who does not find out, and a soldier in love with a general, and a general who does not know, who doubts, if meat if fish, and a cylinder Well, no, not a cylinder. A poor man, that's what it's called, Cilindro–, and corridors, add many corridors.

Do you have it? ... Well! ... Well, if at this point, you still don't have a mess in your head, here's the riddle: All this, together ... what is it? ...

Well, we give you a hint ... Drama, it's not.

Solution: THE EUNUCO, by Terence. This time in a fun, fast-paced and happily free version by Jordi Sánchez and Pep Anton Gómez. Nine characters maddened by love, money, passion, pride, jealousy and mistakes (so many mistakes!). Nine characters, yes. And so many other stories that intertwine in a montage that passes without embarrassment through the classical Greco-Latin theater and the musical, the situation comedy and the vaudeville. Nine characters, as many stories and a devilish rhythm in what it pretends to be and will be a whole party from start to finish.

Edipo Rey by Sófocles

Edipo Rey by Sófocles


Oedipus reigns in Thebes, counting on the veneration of the people and the love of Jocasta, the widow of Laius, the dead king, now his wife. The city is ravaged by many evils and its inhabitants turn to Oedipus to intercede for them. From Delphi, from the altar of Apollo comes the news, brought by Creon, pointing out who killed Laius as the cause of all evil. Only his punishment will save Thebes.

Oedipus agrees to the people to punish the guilty. Tiresias, the blind fortune teller, warns Oedipus and begs him to measure his words because his destiny is marked by Apollo. After the death of the king of Corinth, Polibo, whom Oedipus considers his father, a terrible truth will reach the throne of Thebes: Oedipus is the cause of the death of Laius and Jocasta, the widow and wife of Oedipus, is really his own mother. Faced with this horror, Jocasta takes his own life and Oedipus before the corpse of his mother and wife, gouges out his desperate eyes and demands the punishment that he himself promised for the culprit and thus save Thebes.
