"A peanut was lying down
quiet, looking to see what happened.
The old lady came and zas, ate it.
And that is what happens to peanuts
that stay quiet, lying down,
waiting to see what happens.
They are eaten!"
Tales of Gin and Tonic is a collection of sardonic, ironic and surrealist short tales that put a lens to society and the human condition. Translated for the first time into English, Tales of Gin and Tonic will be performed in English and Portuguese, using a mix of physical theatre, story-telling and live music.
Adapted and Directed for the stage by AlmaLuso Theatre from the works of the Portuguese author Mário Henrique-Leiria (1923-1980) written during the dictatorship regime of Salazar in Portugal (1929 -1974).
