The Kalón theatre company is presenting, Fugadas (Fugitives), by Ignacio del Moral. The author of a number of television scripts and co-author of the screenplays for films such as La cuarta planta (The 4th floor) or Los lunes al sol (Mondays in the Sun), del Moral has an extensive career as a playwright.
Fugadas, written in 1994, is a play in which two women, two friends, remember the times before they met, reveal their doubts and fears, and celebrate their friendship.
A solitary journey in company, a game of mirrors between the image we have of ourselves and how others perceive us, Fugadas is an ambitious and complex work that interweaves flashbacks, imagined moments, silences, laughter and hit-and-miss encounters while, at the same time, mixing reality and fiction.
The fragmented and disordered thread of the narrative allows the spectator to witness situations that demarcate the personalities of the two women while speaking of a friendship that may or may not be real. The title of the play is contextualised into an urban landscape of shops, buses and suburbs, and makes references to both memories to which the protagonists refer (fleeting flashes of light) as well as to the escape which they are in the process of carrying out in search of both physical space and affection (fugitive).
The play has been revived on several occasions and the protagonists of Fugadas on this occasion are Estela Fernández and Menorca-born Azahara Moyano, under the direction of Pedro Villora.
