Nessun dorma (2023)
Author: Eu Manzanares
The 1950s. A woman from a humble neighbourhood arrives at some laboratories in the “uptown” area of the city, where she will listen to classical music while she makes her “voluntary donation”. Hours later, at home, they will jump for joy when they see her arrive with a basket full of food.
It all starts with this true anecdote from the author’s family. This is a story about a playwright determined to talk about family miseries, daughter of a precarious cleaning lady and granddaughter of a woman whose diet was misery.
