Arthur Miller / Sílvia Munt

Some of the finest actors and actresses on today’s Catalan scene place themselves at the orders of director and actress Sílvia Munt to enact a passionate play full of hopes and resentment, remorse and melancholy. It is the story of Víctor and Esther, his wife, who summon the former’s brother, Walter, to the house where the brothers lived with their parents during their childhood. Víctor is a policeman on the point of retiring and his brother has become a successful surgeon. The building where the family lived is going to be demolished and they are waiting for a valuer who will tell them the price of the furniture that still fills the rooms. As they examine the dusty objects, however, they will realize that these sticks of furniture are not the only thing in the house: there is also a host of memories, ghosts that make the characters think about how things could have been if, at a certain moment, they had made different decisions. 

What price do we pay for our choices? One of the great playwrights of the 20th century asked himself this in a production premiered during last year’s Grec that is now returning to the stages of Barcelona.

A production by the 2016 Barcelona Grec Festival and Bitò.
