Shakespeare and the Home of Suicide
Tragedy lead us to Shakespeare. The chosen road is through monologues from some of his most famous plays: Hamlet, Macbeth and Romeo and Julieta. Hesitation, ambition and forbidden love.
Comedy takes us to Casona, through a free version of his comedy No Suicide Allowed in Spring. Sad characters who want to end their lives, recover the joy of living and the will to continue on.
