“Consell familiar” (Family Council), in the Sala Beckett

The play, written by Cristina Clement and directed by Jordi Casanovas, opens on the 21st of November and runs up until the 4th of January

On the 21st of November the Sala Beckett, in the Gràcia district, will be presenting the first performance of Consell familiar, an ironic perspective on the current political situation set in everyday family surroundings. The play, directed by Jordi Casanovas and written by Cristina Clemente, features the members of a family who, in their day-to-day existence, behave as though they were a true democracy.

In this family, a president is elected following strict electoral procedures and the regulated financial system has its own revenue service and state structures. When Aina, the daughter, finds out that not all families function in this manner, she begins to insist on an alternative system. The parents of this family-state, however, are unwilling to change their constitution and will do everything in their power to placate the dissidents.

The play is the result of the author’s participation in the En Residència project, which is organised every year by the Culture Institute and Education Consortium of Barcelona and which, since last year, has made use of the Sala Beckett as a cultural and educational facility.

Consell familiar stars Georgina Latre, Pep Ambròs, Pere Ventura, Lluïsa Castell and Marc Rius and can be seen up until the 4th of January.
