a new Comedy
A funny and poignant new comedy, "The Actress" dramatises the events backstage as a colourful, complicated woman makes her farewell performance, while dealing with the unexpected arrival of her infuriating ex-husband. Drama and comedy collide as they say their goodbyes, declare their love, roar with laughter, spit insults, grab a final embrace, and renew old battles...
"A huge success... The applause just didn't want to end...
The play is full of witty dialogue that is also philosophically profound...A smart, intelligent and very amusing play."
(Der Merkur at the German premiere)
"The audience were thrilled
and greatly moved by the show"
(Dez Minutos de Arte at the Rio de Janeiro premiere)
