Description

Red Carnations is based on a true story: driven by financial greed, a family torments their disabled daughter. After six seasons running, the camera reinvents the austere production, using fast-paced movements to create different spaces reflecting the zealous struggle of a lawyer to defend the young woman’s rights.

Who is normal in our society? What does it mean to be disabled? That is the question asked in Red Carnations, written and directed by Luis Agustoni (nominated for the Florencio Sanchez Award, 2013, in the National author category.)

The drama based on a true story shows us a family who, due to financial interests, are trying to declare their daughter incompetent in order to stop her from disposing of her assets to protect their estate.

The play stars Maria de Pablo Pardo (winner of the 2013 Maria Guerrero Incentive Award and 2013 Jorge Dubatti Spectator School Award), who plays Liliana Doblas, the daughter, and Santiago Rapela, the feisty lawyer who defends her amid the weakness of the justice system.

The cast also features Laura Accetta, Valeria Atienza, Ivana Cur, Matías Durini, Constanza Fossatti, Ana Luz Fürth, Pablo Gagliano, Leonardo PrestIa, Teresa Solana and Luis Troncoso, with costumes and stage design by Nadia Casaux, and lighting by Ramiro Galmes.
