As part of her ongoing post-show Q&A series, on Saturday 4 May 2019, Mates co-founder Terri Paddock talks to the Cervantes Theatre team behind the UK premiere of acclaimed Spanish drama The Reality. Got any questions?

The Cervantes Theatre continues to both bring the best of Spanish drama to London and to champion female voices.

The theatre’s third New Spanish Playwriting season comprises UK premieres of Denise Despeyroux‘s The Reality, Maria Prado’s On/From Debris and Eva Hibernia’s The Old Masters.

The season opens with The Reality, translated by Sarah Maitland. In this haunting new play, twin sisters attempt an awkward exercise of pretending to be someone else, taking them close to the line that separates good and evil; the love of life and destruction; lucidity and madness.

What do you do to pose as someone inside of you? Can you love the living in the same way that you love the dead? Is darkness hindered by light?

Maite Jauregui stars, directed by Raymi Renee, with set design by Mariachiara Maracci, lighting by Nigel Lewis and assistant direction by Imogen Hudson Clayton.

The Reality (La Realidad) was a finalist for the 2013 Max Revelation Prize. Denise Despeyroux is a playwright and director whose work has been presented in Madrid, Barcelona, Buenos Aires and Montevideo. Her other accolades include the Federico García Lorca Award.

After the English-language performance (90 minutes) on Saturday 4 May 2019, I’ll talk to the women behind The Reality. CLICK HERE FOR TICKETS!
