An American musical tragedy

Premiere: Teatro Arena del Sole, Bologna, 19/10/2019

About this event

George and Margaret are a strange American couple. She has the myth of Julie Andrews, he is sure in his reassuring machism. They arrive in the Arizona desert because they are part of the project “Minute Man”, a civil militia, selected by the government, which is in charge of defending the borders from the dangerous neighbours of the South. The external world presents itself through a radio mixing melodies of American musical comedies and disturbing news without touching the characters, indifferent to the miseries of the human beings. The text, written by Juan Carlos Rubio in 2005, seems to be prophetic. Twelve years later, indeed, the president of the United States Donald Trump decided to build a wall separating his country from Mexico.
