Repertorio Espanol presents this comic drama about an ordinary man and his attempts to secure a small bank loan that is absolutely necessary for him to continue on with his life. More…
He cannot offer any guarantees or properties, only his word of honor and a promise that he will eventually pay back every single penny. The rejection of the loan by the branch manager leaves them both in a very delicate and humorous situation.
Performed in Spanish with English subtitles via in-seat captioning. Recommended for adult audiences.
“We are thoroughly entertained by the twists and turns of loan negotiation...We engage in the proceedings as though we are seated in a third chair at the table...De Lombana has us laughing all the way...During the evening we get funny lessons in negotiating, lovemaking, and the use of the eyes and hands to express ineffable emotions...A duet and a pas de deux. Go see it to appreciate its enchanting humor.” Full Review
