Theatro Technis, under the direction of George Eugeniou, is pleased to announce the London revival of Venezuelan play The Day You’ll Love Me by José Ignacio Cabrujas, translation by Eduardo Machado.

After 25 years of its London premiere in 1990 at the Hampstead Theatre, Theatro Technis brings back this multi-award winning political drama.

The play is set in Caracas, Venezuela, on 11 June 1935, when Carlos Gardel, the legendary tango singer, has come to give a concert. This is just what many people have been waiting for. The city is entranced. Living under the dictatorship of General Gómez, there is dissent in the home of the Ancízar family.

María Luisa invests her hope in the first Communist state in Russia and is planning to follow her political ideals and her love of ten years, Pío Miranda, to Stalin’s Ukraine. For the other members of the family – María Luisa’s brother, sister and niece – it is not Communist Russia which represents hope, but the fact that Carlos Gardel is in town, and nothing is more wonderful than when he invites himself for dinner.

Everyone behaves as if they are entertaining royalty, all except for Pío Miranda who sticks to his communist ideals. He reminds Gardel, as well as the Ancízar family, that while Caracas is entranced by a tango star, there are innocent people being tortured and imprisoned by the regime. But does Pío Miranda really have the answers?

In this Chekovian family drama, Cabrujas slices through history and offers us a view of this point in time which is fascinating to reinterpret now, after Venezuela has been living under the revolution initiated by Hugo Chávez 16 years ago.
