“El Éxito de la Temporada” to premiere at the La Latina Theatre in Madrid on April 1st  
El Terrat (THE MEDIAPRO STUDIO) celebrates its 30th anniversary with the comedy which can be seen in Madrid after successful launch in Barcelona

There’s no stopping the 30th anniversary celebrations for the audiovisual and theatre production company El Terrat (THE MEDIAPRO STUDIO). These last few months, the company led by Andreu Buenafuente has been celebrating its mile-stone anniversary with the production of a belly-splitting comedy which premiered in January in Barcelona and which has been both an audience and theatre-critic success.

“El Éxito de la Temporada” is a comedy which can be seen from April 1st in the La Latina Theatre and which features a high-profile cast of actors closely associated with El Terrat, including Sílvia Abril, David Fernández, Fermí Fernández, Oriol Grau, Mònica Pérez, Jordi Rios and Mònica Macfer.

The show, written and directed by Enric Cambray and Israel Solà, revolves around the story of six friends who star in successful TV and radio programs, and who decide to team up to put on “Romeo and Juliet”, to showcase their acting talent. An unlikely turn of events means the show never sees the light of day and twenty years on, the six friends get back together to try to do what they weren’t able to do all that time ago.

Somewhere between fiction and reality, the play’s over-riding theme is friendship as well as reflecting on the passing of time, winning, the relationship between success and fame, satisfaction, personal frustrations and the life of a comic through the figures of actors Catalan theatre-goers have seen grow old and who’ve they’ve laughed along with. The show isn’t a potted history of the production company but rather a new creation which sets out to recapture the spirit and language of the company built around a hilarious plot full of strong emotions.

Despite the challenging situation faced by the theatre industry, the company continues to believe in quality shows and is determined to do all it can to maintain the cultural sector alive and provide audiences with entertainment which helps to escape from the day-to-day hardships of the last year and have a good time. El Terrat and Grupo Pentación are keen to demonstrate their commitment to culture and provide safe environments for audiences to enjoy their productions.

The tickets to see the new show are now on sale via the La Latina Theatre web-site.
