Dark man's gaze and other plays
Ignacio del Moral, Program for Cultural Cooperation between Spain's Ministry of Culture and United States' Universities
Estreno Plays, Mar 31, 2005 - Drama - 61 pages
In this tragicomedy, Del Moral combines humor, fantasy and reality to give a universal picture of immigration and racism in today's world. Two Africans wash up on an isolated beach in Spain, where they are discovered by a Spanish family. Ombasi knows only three words of Spanish, and his friend--also a speaking role-has drowned. But those factors form only a partial explanation for the problems in communication between the black and white characters. A beach with dunes, largely defined by sound and light 3 men (1 white and 2 black) 1 boy 1 woman 1 girl A Mommy And a Daddy This short piece is a bittersweet slice of life. A young man and a young woman meet casually in an urban square where they bring their babies for outings. Their conversation is laced with humor but yet reveals the frustrations and disappointments of their respective lives. A single set, representing a small park or open city space 1 man 1 woman Little Bears At nightfall, three inebriated adolescents alternately share laughter and come to blows. Trapped in an inhospitable urban environment and unsure about their futures, they express universal, existential anguish. A single scenic space, representing a vacant lot 3 young men.
