Three lonely men inside a launderette. Three men who sometimes talk, sometimes sing, sometimes don’t know what to do with their lives. A man who obliged his wife to sleep with his father, another who, as a child, was forced by the girls from next door to make a porn movie, another who finds in a song the way of telling the story of his life.
An strange musical about masculine anguish.
Some men are like little boys. Some men are like blind little boys. Some men are like blind little boys watching a show of fireworks.
The play lasts the time it takes to wash a basket of dirty clothes.
The play is the result of the joint work of actors Carlos Casella, Juan Minujín and Guillermo Arengo, and directors Ana Frenkel and Mariano Pensotti. Departing from the idea of investigating certain commonplaces about masculinity by means of a crossover of artistic genres including dance, theatre, literature and music, the play is centered around the construction of a peculiar world imbued with humour and solitude.
