The Muestra Escénica Iberoamericana (MEI) is presenting four shows this week: Siete hombres buenos, a text by Juan Mayorga; ¡Valientes!, with a singular setting; Informe Lope, a premiere; and Fábula del topo, el murciélago y la musaraña, based on a true story. These options of the Department of Education, Youth, Museums, Culture and Sport of the Cabildo de Tenerife, run by councillor Concepción Rivero, will be on at 8:30 pm at the Teatro El Sauzal. Standard tickets at 12 euros and discounts are available on

The first show, on tomorrow, Tuesday, the 22nd is Siete hombres buenos, by 2RC Teatro. It is a text from the first play by Juan Mayorga, which was awarded Accésit Marqués de Bradomín in 1989, and is first showing now, thirty years later. It is about a government in exile for many years. Ideals have changed, past treasons return to the present, personal interests taint this government when the tyrant is overthrown and there is a chance to return. 

¡Valientes! by Burka Teatro, is an apparent dramatized guided tour by an exquisite historian who is interrupted by an astonishing character, a homeless woman who is actually a fount of wisdom. They will both take the audience on an exciting, amusing journey across the stories of many women who have fought for gender equality since Antiquity. This play will be performed on Wednesday, the 23rd at MEI with a singular setting where there is no stage. 

On Friday, the 25th Informe Lope will be premiered. Morfema Teatro recreates the setting of a mysterious corporation whose basements store theatre plays from all periods, including the ones by Lope de Vega. Ramírez and González, a woman and a man respectively, are the officials in charge of classifying and preparing it for “publication”. The conflict develops from the main topic it deals with, that is, the way the playwright conceived his female characters. 

On Sunday, the 27th Fábula del topo, el murciélago y la musaraña, by Delirium Teatro, will tell us about the ups and downs experienced by Pedro Perdomo Pérez and his family. He was a chairperson of PSOE (Socialist Party) at the Casa del Pueblo in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria during the first days of the army uprising in 1936 after which he turned first into a target, then into a fugitive and eventually, into a topo of Franco repression. After hiding for 33 years at the house of two of his sisters and protected by an amnesty, he resurrects to the world at the beginning of the Transition. This show is part of Teatro El Sauzal programme.
