From the rolling imagination of writer-director Guilermo Calderón, comes this politically charged, haunting drama about a near-future war in Chile.

As part of Ulster Bank Dublin Theatre Festival and peppered with large doses of pitch-black comedy, Diciembre takes place on Christmas Eve 2014 in Santiago, a city besieged by Peruvian forces. Young soldier Jorge returns home on leave to celebrate the holiday with his pregnant twin sisters. When they discover his plans to defect, both react sharply revealing their fiercely entrenched opposing views of the war.

Fast, funny and intense, Calderón strips away the conceits of war and gives us a bracing look at racism, nationalism and pacifism. Coming direct from the Edinburgh International Festival, Teatro en el Blanco is certain to captivate Dublin with its emotive, visceral and razor-sharp theatre.

What the critics thought:

“Explores the reality of war and its power to transform collective consciousness and domestic life.” Caras y Caretas

Age Suitability: Contains strong language. Performed in Spanish with English subtitles.

Mamafesta Memorialising, which enjoyed its successful international premiere in France last year, is woven from inspirations including musical theatre, Bruce Forsythe’s Generation Game and most importantly, Philip’s mum Madeleine, who has senile dementia. Philip made his last piece, Assisted Solo, about her. But it wasn’t enough. He still has more to do and more to say. He’s worried that what’s happening to her will happen to him. His latest testimony to an ever-evolving,…
