The Bear
by Anton Chekhov

“In the course of his life HE has seen more women than she has seen sparrows. But SHE shall be faithful to the departed husband to the grave.”

A devastatingly desperate trio of hot-heads, trapped in the turbulence of their lives! An emotional exchange quickly progresses into a duel, where someone is about to get a bullet in their honest heart! Written in 1888, The Bear is a dynamic, provocative and passionate theatrical joke.

with Margarida Lancastre, Daniel Cotterall and Daniel Rooney
Directed by: Tania Kumeda

The Stone Flower
by Elettra Sacchi

“Where others see mud, Danushka, you see topaz and chalcedony!”
Based on the tale first published in The Malachite Casket by Pavel Bazhov, this new play tells the story of the coming of age of Danila, a young man of humble origins, enormous talent and a courageous heart. Along the way, he meets a talking wolf, a woman of magic… and his destiny.

with Álex Peracaula, Alexander Wiss, Beactriz Guerreiros, Freddie Douglas, Joana Cunha, Joyce Jones, Kieran Hennigan, Lisa Erkens, Maria João Gaspar, Mariana Cabral, Märten Jedehulth

Directed by: Elettra Sacchi
