The play by Grupo Teatruva will take place tomorrow at 8:30 p.m. in the Francisco Álvarez Abrante Auditorium with free entry.


The Amateur Theatre programme of the Auditorio de Tenerife is presenting the play El caso de la señora estupenda (The Case of the Wonderful Lady), performed by the cultural association Fiesta de la Vendimia-theatre ensemble Teatruva. The play can be seen tomorrow (Wednesday 4th) at 8:30 p.m. in the Francisco Álvarez Abrante Auditorium in La Perdoma, La Orotava. Entry is free until the total capacity is reached.

The story of this play takes place in the middle of a war in an imaginary city in the Balkans. The plot begins with the arrival of a newly married couple at a hotel. And so, the mess is clear to see. It is a comedy but with a hint of bitterness that wittily mocks the institution of marriage, the international climate of espionage and counter-espionage, and warfare.

Wame Gutiérrez directs this play, assisted by Candelaria Rodríguez, with costumes by Luisa Luis and the group itself, who have also created the set design. The actors and members of the association are Dionisio Linares, Afligidos García, Ezequiel de León, José Manuel Ramos, Luisa Herrera, María García, Domingo Arbelo, Luisa Luis, Inés Hernández, Domingo Hernández, Goyo Pérez, and Macu Hernández.

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.

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.
