Premiere BOTH CYRANO AND A GIRLEdmond Rostand - Guillermo Baldo
Coproduction with the Poco Loco Theatre and in collaboration with the Kamov Youth Theatre of Rijeka
The Latin American adaptation of Cyrano de Bergerac, a famous play by the French writer Edmond Rostand written in verse, is being co-produced with the Poco Loco Theatre in Zagreb. The curse of unrequited love described in the play, set in the present day, will be taken a step further in our adaptation, in which the tragic love story becomes a story of an unaccepted, different love – love between two girls. The play is intended for those of high school age, but is recommended for the whole family. Guillermo Baldo wrote the text Both Cyrano and a Girl, with which he won the Grand Prix at the National Drama Text Competition for Children’s Theatre, organized by the Argentine Theatre Institute.

Jela, who isn’t a little girl anymore, goes back in time to tell us about a girl who sometimes is a girl and sometimes is a boy.
A girl who answers her best friend’s love letters signing as a boy.
Together they build a trench, a refuge.
They exchange more and more letters and words of love,
as the girl is lead to find new emotions that she can’t
either classify or understand.
The girl is in love.
A piece of news changes the course of life…
And if truth will out,
love and the urge of desire will hurry it up.
Is it possible to understand love at some age?
