Guillem Clua’s comedy “Smiley”, performances in Miami and NYC

Performing.  Miami, New York,  29/06/2019

A Japanese legend says that when two people are destined to be together, an invisible red thread tied to the little finger of the hand binds them from the day they are born. Alex and Bruno, make up a strange couple in which they only have in common that they are two men and that they have fallen in love. Their differences seem insurmountable, and their antagonistic personalities, whether they want it or not, are united by that red thread, however often they want to break it.


“Smiley”: A New Hilarious Comedy

Written by Guillem Clua

Directed by Ismanuel Rodríguez

Running time: 1 hr 30 min

Guillem Clua is a playwright from Barcelona, Catalonia (Spain). He is considered one of the most innovative voices in the Spanish theater scene and part of a new generation of playwrights born in the seventies who are transforming the Catalan stage with their plays. Critics have described his work as multidisciplinary, eclectic, and very much concerned with narrative structure and plot. Storytelling is at the heart of his style, which combines elements of comedy, thriller and melodrama, a vibrant rhythm, and the unabashed influence of other media, such as television and cinema.
