Álex and Bruno, the two protagonists of this romantic comedy, couldn’t be more different. They make up a strange couple in which they only have in common that they are two men and that they have fallen in love.

The play is known, since there was a very successful series on Netflix, however, very few know that it was first a play, and we have it back in Mexico!

MMF: Love, attachment, desire, and people who don’t understand the difference

After almost two years of being together, the polyamorous relationship of Daniel (Solkin Ruz), Julia (Fernanda Mijares-Bracho) and Miguel (Axel Arenas) comes to an end, forcing them to face the consequences of a non-traditional relationship. Anyone who has gone through a crush could recognize themselves in this work that explores love, desire, attachment… and people who don’t understand the difference. MMF is the beautiful and unfortunate story of non-assertive communication in a romantic relationship.

The problem will never be that there are 3, 4, 5 or 2 people, but rather how they communicate. Neither love nor “unfiltered honesty” are enough to maintain a relationship. We should talk about needs, desires, insecurities, fears, limits, agreements, mental, emotional, and sexual health. Embrace the field of emotional responsibility in a relationship.

What Julia, Miguel and Daniel lack is not to love deeply and madly, but to love ethically. That is the very powerful detail that supports all this fiction, so finely written, that it will lead us to feel identified in this sea of ​​emotions, beautiful unknown or not unknown that love can be.

It is presented on Thursdays at 8:30pm at the Lucerna Forum.

Two sisters, Alba and Maga, look for a way to throw those words in their faces that their bodies have not yet said. Alba and Maga, who have loved each other through resentment for years, do not need to come to blows to hurt each other. Language is enough for them. A surgical and stark language, of a strange lyrical intensity, which they wield like a weapon to express their desire for revenge: «Do you realize what we have come to?, Alba asks Maga. Let the word sister tear your lips. And later, Maga nails her response: “If I destroy your language I destroy you, if I destroy your language I destroy your world.” It is an agile, dynamic and hard story, an immense conflict between two sisters. A moment of reproach and love.

The protagonists of this story, two Spanish actresses who will bring this performance to life are Alba Messa and Maga Díaz, on Wednesdays at the Shakespeare Forum starting April 17.
