This amateur theatre proposal puts us in the dilemma of the main character who finds a briefcase with 10 million Euros


The Amateur Theatre programme is releasing the work Dinero negro (Dirty Money), by the theatre association Tatrum. The first performance takes place on Friday [7th] at 8:00 p.m. at the Teatro Unión Tejina. The tickets, at a single price of €6, can be ordered through the usual channels of the cultural space in La Laguna.

The story begins when Carlos García finds 10 million Euros in a briefcase. When he gets home, his wife, Ana, has prepared a birthday dinner for him, but he only wants to escape as soon as possible. The doorbell rings and the detective Morales appears, who has followed Carlos due to his strange behaviour. Then, the sister of Ana and her son arrive to join the birthday party, but the taxi that Carlos has ordered to escape also parks up. Confusion increases and things get complicated because deputy inspector Gutiérrez turns up at the house.

The cast that is bringing this comedy to life is formed by the members of the association Tatrum, which staged the work Bar Manolo this season: José Manuel Sosa, Yésica Rodríguez, José Luis Rubio, Pepe Damas, Olga Covadonga González, Olga Vanesa Curotto and Hugo Rodríguez.

The programme Teatro Aficionado (Amateur Theatre) is part of the Educational and Social Area of the Auditorio de Tenerife. This programme encourages interest in the hobby of theatre and the production of theatrical plays by the existing associations in Tenerife. It aims to stimulate matters such as communication, the exchange of ideas, and creativity amongst members who, in turn, belong to youth collectives, cultural collectives, women's collectives, and neighbourhood groups, among others.

Its main objectives are to promote a liking for theatre among different social and cultural groups, to promote the general public's attendance to, and love of, theatrical plays, and to contribute to enriching the technical/artistic quality of amateur theatre groups and to create different work groups.
