The actor Brays Efe stars "The extraordinary things", a text by the British playwright Duncan McMillan directed by Pau Roca, which starts with a seven-year-old boy who at the news that his mother has tried to take his own life begins to write a list of Things worth living for.
From "the ice creams" or "the water wars" the list will advance with the existence of the character, that arrives until the present time, to other extraordinary things like "an awakening with the person you want".
The popular interpreter of "Paquita Salas" changes the record by getting into the skin of this character from seven years to the present interacting with the public, who will be an active part of the work, showing his improvisation and host skills in a story of which is the protagonist and in which it will show its most sentimental vein.
Fun and emotional, Brays Efe brings the honesty requested by the McMillan text that bets on the positive, humor and vitality to face dramatic situations such as the protagonist lives throughout his life with a mother with chronic depression and trends suicidal
"Extraordinary things" is metabolized as "a comedy about personal crises" with a certain optimism and far from drama.
Everything is in the right place so that the public leaves with a smile and with the sensation of having been part of a kind of catharsis with the invaluable help of the only actor, or perhaps not the only one, of the assembly.
Brays Efe stars in the Castilian version of McMillan's work, which premiered with great success in the Lola Membrives room at the Teatro Lara in Madrid last spring, although it was previously done in Catalan starring Pau Roca who now directs the version in Spanish.
The work, whose original title is "Every Brilliant thing" premiered at the Ludlow Fringe Festival in 2013 and before arriving in Spain has also premiered in Edinburgh, New York and Australia.
Intimate montage, as fun as emotional, that starts with a seven-year-old boy who, at the news that his mother has tried to take his own life, writes a list of things worthwhile.
Pau Roca, who starred in the Catalan premiere of this wonderful text by Duncan MacMillan, now directs Brays Efe in the Spanish version that premiered with great success at the Off of the Lara Theater in Madrid.
