Plácido grupo de teatro performs comedy theatre with a good cause on sumision de padresSaturday, June 21, 2014
Fun, charity and a dinner party gone awry
For The Herald
SuMisión de Padres is a work which had a good share of success, since it is being revived this year. The piece constitutes a jolly, amusing comedy set in a prosperous suburban home owned by a family who have invited two couples of friends for dinner. It dwells on the not-so-easy task of being parents end how to deal with educating children. Needless to say, disagreements arise and many comical situations and misunderstandings flow one after the other. It is a play in which doors — including that of the bathroom — are hectically opened and slammed.
The piece is written by Sebastián Goetz and Lucas García Haymes (who are also performing) and directed with the right kind of rhythm and coordination by Leo Kreimer. The cast of very different, well-sketched players, work well as a team in the fast, amusing, complicated — and most of all, well-coordinated — scenes. With fine mise-en-scène by Marcos Maiorano, whose backstage team managed faultless scene changes. The theatre’s location will surely be a surprise for many who drive past the famous Alparamis store on Libertador Avenue in Olivos: the theatre is located within the store’s premises.
