Sunday, October 30, 2022 @ 15:00 – 16:00
Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s darkly comic tale brought to the stage for children and adults to share. In a kitchen of a theatre, two storytellers and their audience find something remarkable – a very old man with enormous wings. Inspired by Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s Un Senor Muy Viejo Con Unas Alas Enormes, this classic piece of magic realism is brought to the stage with beautiful, strange, emotional richness.
