SYNOPSIS: El Gobierno quiere cerrar el pozo que es la fuente de riqueza de Villanueva de la Faca, un pequeño pueblo en las fronteras de un gran Parque Natural. Pero Julián, el alcalde recién elegido, piensa cumplir lo que prometió a los vecinos de su pueblo: el pozo será legalizado. Por mucho que el Gobierno o la Unión Europea insistan en el dichoso cambio climático y en cómo los cultivos de caqui están secando el Parque Natural. Una mentira que sólo quiere favorecer a los pájaros y las alimañas que se comen sus sembrados. Pero por mucho que lo intenta, Julián no consigue encontrar la vía administrativa para legalizar el pozo, así que urde un plan para que la extracción de agua del Parque Natural sea intocable, recuperar lo que pasó hace mucho tiempo donde hoy está el pozo: una aparición mariana. Así que por gracia y obra de la Virgen María, el agua que mana del pozo se convierte en Agua Santa. Y el lugar, en un sitio de peregrinación lejos de las garras del Gobierno. Pero quizás el agua del Parque, como dicen algunos, no sea infinita...

SYNOPSIS: El reputado autor John D'Agata ha escrito una crónica sobre la tasa de suicidios en Las Vegas para una de las mejores revistas del país. Emily, su redactora jefa, encarga al becario Jim Fingal la verificación de hechos del escrito pero pronto se encuentra con un “pequeño” problema: gran parte de ellos se los ha inventado. Lo que empieza como un trabajo más, pronto se convertirá en una hilarante historia sobre los límites que separan la libertad narrativa de la ficción.

DIRECTOR NOTES: "Así son las cosas y así se las hemos contado". De este modo cerraba el informativo de la noche un conocido presentador de TV de este país. Pero esas mismas cosas no parecían ser "así" en el informativo de la competencia. Entonces, ¿qué cosas son ciertas? ¿Puede la imprecisión narrativa de unos hechos viciar el trasfondo de una noticia? ¿A partir de cuántos errores se convierte en falsa? Aquí radica la piedra angular sobre la que se sustenta un debate ancestral y que ha dado de comer desde hace siglos a profesionales de la comunicación de todo el mundo, ya sean de medios impresos, televisivos o digitales. Si los hechos no fueran más que una sucesión de fechas, nombres y cifras, no nos haría falta más que un solo periódico, canal de televisión o portal de noticias digital. Curiosamente, los países totalitarios en los que esto se da son caldo de cultivo para las “fake news”, enviando un mensaje único e incontestable -bajo pena de cárcel- de que “así son las cosas”. Realidad vs. Autenticidad. Hechos empíricos frente a la falta de precisión de los mismos con el fin de transmitir con mayor “verdad” una historia. Partiendo de un caso real, Hechos y Faltas sintetiza este debate con acierto y lo lleva a escena combinando magistralmente inteligencia, comedia y actualidad. Todo lo que busco en el teatro: que me entretenga reflexionando.

SYNOPSIS: Luis is offered the perfect apartment: roomy, very bright, luxurious and so inexpensive. There's just one problem: she can't move in until the current owner, the elderly Lola, dies.

DIRECTOR NOTES: Life? What is life? A question that humans have asked themselves since they lived in caves and even today no one has managed to fully answer. Years ago I came across a quote by John Lennon: "Life is what happens to you while you are busy making other plans" and I found it absolutely revealing. Plans, future, expectations, mortgages... Who has not made the mistake of leaving happiness for tomorrow? Or at least, who has not fallen into the temptation of trying to control events to prevent them from turning our existence upside down? With these premises I wrote this simple fable called The Inconvenience (aka 100m2). A story of wounded souls struggling to communicate and, why not, to learn to live properly. It is impossible to build a theatrical show without a large team of creators and technicians. And this one put together by our producers (Talycual, Txalo and La Alegría, led by Bernabé Rico) is first class. Thank you all for giving form to this story of shared solitudes. At your side things are very easy. And thank you Kiti, Cristóbal and Marta for your unwavering faith and your tremendous talent. Dear audience, I hope you enjoy the show. And don't forget that first things must always come first, they must always come NOW.
