What else could go wrong? Tensions run high as Lloyd Dallas, the director of this play’s play-within-a-play, struggles to prepare his accident-prone cast for the opening of British bedroom comedy Nothing On. Missed cues, jealous lovers, a lost contact lens and a troublesome plate of sardines all conspire to ruin the performance. Michael Frayn’s award-winning farce details the hilarity that ensues behind the scenes of a theatrical production as characters attempt to untangle the chaos and salvage the play.

“The most dexterously realized comedy ever about putting on a comedy. A spectacularly funny, peerless backstage farce. This dizzy, well-known romp is festival of delirium.” — The New York Times

Teatro y Su Doble: FEOS

Inspired by Uruguayan writer Mario Benedetti’s short story “La Noche de los Feos,” Chilean theater troupe Teatro y Su Doble tenderly and playfully express the unlikely meeting of two strangers in line at a movie theater. United by the loneliness caused by their physical deformities, the pair quickly realize that they have much in common. Drawing deeply mature emotions, Teatro y Su Doble craft beautiful scenes that touch the soul, despite—or, perhaps, due to—their fundamental strangeness.

Chilean theater troupe Teatro y Su Doble is a fiercely creative force. Its multimedia storytelling process borrows techniques from puppetry and animation to create a bold analog to traditional theater. “FEOS,” which debuted at Chile’s esteemed Santiago a Mil International Festival in 2015, refines this innovative approach.
