SPAM. At El Extranjero (Valentín Gómez 3378. Tel: 4862-7400. www.elextranjeroteatro.com). Wed-Thurs-Fri at 9pm.
Renowned playwright-actor Rafael Spregelburd stars in his stage production of Spam, about a college lecturer who’s been unwillingly tutoring a stubborn student’s graduation thesis.
Spam, of course, refers to the unwanted email we’re all so familiar with, full of pseudo offers to become rich overnight, under the counter Viagra and other medical products, requests to wire money to foreign bank accounts and, tucked in between the trash, one or two authentic messages that somehow did not make it to the Inbox.
The student’s insistent emails end up in the Spam box, and the teacher’s efforts to avoid unwanted messages from her are useless.
