Quant temps em queda? [How much time do I have left?]

Marta Buchaca

Teatre Goya 24/06 - 06/08

Start thinking about what things you would put on the list of everything you would want to do before you die or, better still, start doing them before it is too late.

What would you do if you had just one more month to live? Pere has a long list of crazy things he wants to do before the end: quit his job, go round the world, be shamelessly honest with everyone, walk naked along Passeig de Gràcia, climb Montserrat on his knees, have a threesome... And the most important: make sure his wife will be happy when he's gone. He has a strategy in place, which, according to him, cannot fail. But... Can he make it work? 

Quant temps em queda? is a comedy to die laughing. The author, Marta Buchaca - one of the playwrights closely followed by a Grec festival attentive to local creation - already portrayed a generation whose youth was slipping away in plays such as Emergència (2006), where she imagined four friends who suffered and shared their sentimental catastrophes; Les nenes no haurien de jugar al futbol (2009), in which a traffic accident exposes the unexpected relationships between three characters; Losers (2013), a romantic comedy, finalist in the Temporada Alta Playwriting Tournament, about what happens when you find the love you have been chasing for so long; the highly acclaimed Litus (2012), a comedy with elements of thriller made into a film by Dani de la Orden that was created in response to the suicide of a young man; or, more recently, Només una vegada, a story about gender violence seen at the Grec 2018 Barcelona Festival and also adapted into a film directed by Guillermo Ríos; and Rita, a play about mother-son relationships and the possibility of making decisions about the deaths of those we love, for which she won the Frederic Roda Theatre Award.
