La Pensión de las Pulgas - a New Theater Concept

Last Sunday I had a great time going to the theater at the lovely "Pension de las Pulgas", one of my recent favorites! The play Tape was represented in two different rooms and as usual I was not disappointed!

 From mid-May to the end June that same play can also be seen at another charming theater of Madrid: Teatro Lara and I definitely recommend it.


Tape is the story of a group of friends from high school that see each other 10 years later. The writer, Stephen Belber, wrote the play influenced by a debate about slavery in the USA and the dilemma over whether or not Clinton’s government should apologize for this. The question raised centers on whether regret is still valid after such a long time.

In the play, the three main actors take different paths in life but there was an event at high school, when they were foolish teenagers, that hasn’t been forgotten and it is very interesting to see how the plot takes you to an unexpected scenario. I also enjoyed the fact that nothing seemed to be as you thought.


I don’t want to reveal more details, but if you feel like going to the theater, don’t miss this play. The three actors: Fran Calvo, Yolanda Vega and Jano Sanvicente are great in their performance. Enjoy!

Mi gran y último descubrimiento teatral es La Pensión de las Pulgas. Hace poco fui a ver la representación de Tape, una obra que no me defraudó y que recomiendo vivamente. A partir de mediados de mayo y hasta finales de junio se puede ver (no ya en la Pensión de las Pulgas) en el teatro Lara, otro teatro que tambien tiene mucho encanto.
Tape es al historia de unos amigos de instituto que se encuentran 10 años después. El escritor, Stephen Belber, escribió la trama inspirado por el debate sobre la esclavitud en Estados Unidos y la oportunidad o no de pedir perdón tantos años después. 
Para los tres personajes de la obra, la vida tras el colegio ha evolucionado de maneras distintas, pero hay algo que pasó durante durante su vida escolar que no ha sido olvidado. El resultado es inesperado y nada resulta lo que parece.
No cuento más para no hacer spoiling (que palabro!) solo que los actores Fran CalvoYolanda Vega Jano Sanvicente estan que se salen y que !hay que ir a verla!
