  3. Three short plays: Cuanto vale una heladera by Claudia Piñeiro, Mesa de saldos by Claudio Regis & Verona by Claudia Piñeiro


An evening of three short plays by well-know Argentine playwrights Claudia Piñeiro & Claudio Regis!

ALL PERFORMANCES ARE IN SPANISH. English surtitles are not available for this production.

Cuánto vale una heladera (How much is a refrigerator worth) by Claudia Piñeiro, one of the most widely read authors in Argentina and worldwide.
The work subtly addresses, through humor, the theme of reclaiming identity in a modern, globalized, and bureaucratic world.

Mesa de Saldos (Sale Table) by Claudio Regis.
A man searches for books written and dedicated by hand by his deceased grandfather, whom he deeply admires. Claudio Regis easily captures our interest in participating in an intriguing everyday scene.

Verona by Claudia Piñeiro
A warm and amusing work about the complexity of love and sisterhood.

No late seating!
