Alvaro García de Zúñiga's Plays

Théâtre Impossible

Lamentably – alas and alak – after months and months of writing, rehearsals, re-writings, discussions and serious discussions about the content of the piece Theatre Impossible - and also the question of whether or not it has any (contents), that it may not be entirely obvious - the team/cast arrived at the conclusion that it is absolutely impossible to mount “Theatre Impossible” as forseen.

This impossibility, paradoxically, more than a pebble in the shoe, fits like a glove, or better said with the rhetoric of the tongue, unpredictably permits us to present, on the dates (fruit) foretold, a shoe, a hand and a tongue. It is already that.
