Storyline

We are in 1885. In a ghostly train, the Oviedo Express, the actors that represent the theatrical adaptation of Clarín's 'The Regent' are traveling. The arrival of the comedians to the Asturian capital will alter the daily life of the city. The mayor's wife will fall into the arms of the main actor, and the passions and delusions will surface with all its consequences. A depressed actor, a furious actress, a petulant director, a local journalist, a spirited mother, and an angel roaming the city unleash fun and dramatic events until the abrupt and unexpected fall of the curtain.

Terrible
1 July 2018 | by VoyagerMN1986See all my reviews

I'll keep it short. The "play within a play' scenario, can, if very well done, be among the most interesting plot basis. It profoundly elevates Hamlet; or if you into more current entertainment, the mummers episodes in Game of Thrones are great -- intelligently exploiting the irony of alternative point of view.

But sometimes it is an absurd, narcissistic and empty trope. It is here.
