Ay Carmela is a tragicomedy about love, loss, and the human cost of war
In the play, a company with a variety show, made up of Carmela and her husband Paulino, travels up and down Spain during the Spanish Civil War. They accidentally cross the front without realizing it from the Republican to the Franco side. When they are surprised by Franco’s troops, they are forced to improvise a theatrical performance in honor of the fascist army, which ends in tragedy. Using music, comedy, pathos, and fantastical realism, the play explores a confused space dominated by fear, aggression, and the innocence that is always silenced by war.
