I’m delighted to return to the Cervantes Theatre, London’s home of Spanish and Latin American drama, for my second of three post-show Q&As in the 2019 season. After new play The Reality and before the adaptation of Isabel Allende’s The House of The Spirits, I’m there in September for The Eyes of the Night.

The Eyes of the Night headlines the Cervantes Theatre’s second annual Contemporary Spanish Theatre season after a successful dramatised reading as part of the 2018 programme last September.

The Eyes of the Night is a play written by one of the most important Spanish playwrights of her generation, Paloma Pedrero. This complex and beautiful play reveals the deepest desires and fears of a middle-aged businesswoman who needs to experience the darkness in order to see the light.

Life is full of moments of change that can pop up at any time. An unexpected encounter between an older woman, who supposedly has triumphed in life, and a young blind man who she’s hired to spend a few hours in a hotel room can be the trigger for a new life. Both will have to be able to open up and let themselves go with the flow.

The Eyes of the Night is translated by Catherine Boyle and directed by Daniela Fejerman.

After the first English-language performance on Friday 13 September 2019, I’ll talk to the women behind The Eyes of the Night. CLICK HERE FOR TICKETS!
