Animales de compañía

Theatre show.

Do you know how a woman and a dog are alike? They are both pets. Marta, the protagonist of this piece, has heard her father tell this “joke” many times. Raised in violence and repression, she now faces adulthood with a marriage to a man who minimises her to the point of reducing her to nothing and even resorts to violence to impose his authority. The death of the family pet creates a deep rift in the relationship. Marta dares to confront her man and suffers the consequences, but ends up taking a decisive step towards her freedom. A play about gender violence, love for animals and individual freedom.
