Description

Monday April 17th – Spain “Promised Land”

Synopsis:“Promised Land” is a farce on the subject of climate change and the inefficiency of international organizations to stop its terrible consequences. The play is set in the future at the United Nations headquarters in New York City and tells the story of the president and the diplomatic delegation of a fictitious country, Malvati, that is about to sink under the sea. Comedy, melodrama, political intrigue and mythology intertwine to make Promised Land one of Guillem Clua’s more reality-aware plays but also one of his funniest. Although an array of characters appear in the play, the script requires only four actors. Clua has given the roles of the mythological Malvati, one self-satisfied UN official, and some twenty-five delegates from different countries to a single actor. It can only be called an actor’s tour-de-force.

Playwright: Guillem Clua

Translator: Marion Peter Holt

Director: Emilio Williams
