The play “The Plan” is surprising not only because of its story, but also thanks to the honest and direct style Ignasi Vidal uses to tell us this story. We can find comedy inside the drama of the three characters, socially isolated because of the economic crisis. Vidal knows how to confront us with the everyday life,but also, at the end of the story, on top of everything else, how to leave us with a deep reflexion about friendship. The hyperrealism in the characterization of performances leads the audience to believe everything the actors say, everything they do. Three brilliant actors, going from comic situations to deeply dramatic ones, give life to a brilliant text, supported by an accurate staging and effective sound effects.

About playwright
Spanish Nationality. Ignasi Vidal was born in Barcelona in 1973. He is a playwright, director, musician, singer and an actor. He was very young when he created A Media Distancia, his rock band, singing his own songs, but his acting studies with Carlos Lasarte took him to the theatre world, where he grew up thanks to his father, Ignacio Vidal, a successful theater producer. He worked as an actor in cinema and TV, but it is in theater, mostly in musicals, where he will develop most of his career mainly with Stage Entertainment: Les Miserables, Rent, Jesus Christ Superstar, Spamalot or The Beauty and the Beast. Now Ignasi dedicates most of his time to his passion, writing plays, with a very particular style. He doesn’t write to make people feel good or even to make him feel good. When writing, he is mobilized by some anxiety, and he eventually lets the characters express their own feelings, like in the real life.
