Señora de rojo sobre fondo gris [Lady in red on a grey background]
28 November - 20:30 - 22:30
Drama A painter of many years’ standing has been suffering a breakdown in his creative process for some time. Since the unexpected death of his wife, who meant everything to him, he has been incapable of going back to painting. It’s the summer and autumn of 1975.
This play is the story of a love story frantically careering towards death, where we hear about happiness and his loss, and which eventually covers the intimacy of all human beings, and their emotion through a straight and simple pathway of truth.
“The two types of women that I have portrayed with the greatest of care throughout my lifetime as a writer are: Carmen, Menchu, the principal character in Cinco horas con Mario and Ana, the central character in Señora de rojo sobre fondo gris. Two women, no longer different but contrasting, who in some way we can consider to symbolise Spain in the second half of the 20th century”. Miguel Delibes.
