The municipal theater group presents this weekend at the Cultural Centre in Serra the play Los árboles mueren de pie (Trees die standyng tall), by Alejandro Casona.

The theatrical performance will be done in two sessions, Saturday and Sunday, at 19.30. .

Los árboles mueren de pie is a drama in three acts that has as its central theme the farce to make people happy. Although, in the end, the lie is discovered. The play is the great theatrical stakes of the group for this year 2018 and has the support of the Department of Culture of the City of Serra.

The grandson decides to come back home to get some money, but the boat sinks. Balboa hires an imitator, together with a very nice girl, who pretends to be the lost grandson in front of the grandmother. But the evil and real grandson arrives by surprise: he is not dead as they thought.
