Por Piedad Teatro (Mexico) and PlayCo (USA) present the West Australia  premier of their celebrated hit theatrical production A SPECIAL DAY at FIRNGE WORLD. 

★★★★★ “A must see for your Fringe diary” - The Sunday Mail, Adelaide Fringe
★★★★★ “A Special Day is a must-see bittersweet drama" - British Theatre Guide, Edinburgh Fringe
★★★★ “A few props and a supply of chalk are all charismatic Mexican actors Ana  Graham and Antonio Vega need to create the world of A Special Day” - The Advertiser, Adelaide Fringe

Mexican actors performing in English a play set in Italy would seem rather odd if theatre was not about make believe.
Inspired by Ettore Scola’s classic Italian film, UNA GIORNATA PARTICOLARE, actors Ana Graham and Antonio Vega use a few props, a piece of chalk and the power of imagination to  transport the audience  to an apartment building in Rome on May 3,1938; the day that Hitler visited Mussolini where an unconventional bittersweet love story flourishes between two neighbors  as the two confront a politically  charged landscape in the rise of fascism. 

A brilliant production of a touching yet confronting story that wisely uses creative storytelling.

A SPECIAL DAY  is performed in English at Girls School, 2 Wellington St, East Perth.
