The work, an adaptation of the text of the same name by Cirilo Leal, will be staged by Los Viñedos elderly people association


The Amateur Theatre programme of the Auditorio de Tenerife is presenting the premiere of Pueblo seco (Dry Village), by the Los Viñedos elderly people association. The work is an adaptation of the text of the same name by Cirilo Leal. The event will take place tomorrow (Wednesday 27th) at 8.00 p.m. at the town square, Plaza de la Cruz Santa, in Los Realejos. Entry is free until the full capacity is reached.

The story takes place in a barren valley of a village on the island of Tenerife. The lack of rain has afflicted this mid-altitude zone, where another reality is also experienced: the sun delights tourists. The plot takes place on the town square, which is home to the old and deteriorated town hall and the luxury mansion of the owner of a large part of the land and most of the shares in the mine galleries, shafts and water reservoirs in the entire valley.

The show is directed by Wame Gutiérrez, while the costumes and stage design are by the theatre group Los Viñedos. The cast that brings this comedy in the form is formed by: Cheda Pérez, Antonia María García, Carmen Luz García, Olga Romero, Juanita González, Mercedes Abrante, Isabel Hernández, Luisa Trujillo and Candelaria García.

The programme Teatro Aficionado (Amateur Theatre) is an initiative that is included in 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.
