No. 32 Juan Pablo Heras: Marilyn’s Mustache (El bigote de Marilyn) Translated by Rick Hite. 2009.

Marilyn’s Mustache is a clever and poignant metatheatrical dark comedy where today’s cyberspace and yesterday’s celluloid worlds intersect to create a bizarre stage of one’s own with every character playing a part in someone else’s script. It is a human story of love, dreams and failures but it also highlights the unforeseen irony subtly embedded in the twenty-first century’s version of a matchmaker, the Internet.

Characters:
4 women
4 men

One set with multiple levels
