Le Prénom, a comedy about friendship, love, hypocrisy and human bonds, develops in one evening at a couple’s home. They are entertaining friends that night and the small talk goes places and circumstances they never expected to tread on. Starting with a banal-all-important event (the fact that a would-be-father has decided to name the baby “Adolf”). As the name automatically brings reminiscences of Nazi criminal Adolf Hitler, everyone begins to argue the propriety of the unborn’s name.
El extranjero, (Valentín Gómez 3378, 4862-7400, www.elextranjeroteatro.com) Thursdays and Fridays, 9pm; Saturdays, 4.30pm. Tickets: from $70 at the venue.
Written and directed by Rafael Spregelburd. This is a ridiculous apocalyptic fantasy with a party-ending background. The story of a Neapolitan professor — a vain linguist — who suffers from an unusual accident and loses — along with the public — his memory of what happened. Everything must be reconstructed against the unrefined laws of chance; cause and effect must be united. With an ironic humour, Rafael Spregelburd (along with Zypce in the musical direction) manages to entertain and make the audience think, throughout a piece as delirious as reflexive.
