El Crédito, una tragicomedia muy real

Dos grandes de las tablas como Carlos Hipólito y Luis Merlo, se ponen en la piel de un director de banco y un cliente que viene a solicitar un crédito sin más aval que su palabra de que lo devolverá. Os suena de algo?

Algunos trabajos nos permiten pasar asépticamente de largo frente a los problemas de la sociedad, pero otros, como ser director de una entidad bancaria, no. “Y es que hasta ahora, en nuestro civilizado mundo, cuando alguien necesitaba dinero iba al banco y pedía un crédito. La mayor parte de las veces tú se lo concedías, pero si no era así, callaban y volvían para su casa, cabizbajos, conformados, pensando que las cosas iban muy mal, que el crédito no fuía y te dejaban en paz. Hoy ya no puedes confiarte…”  Tragicomedia que lleva tres temporadas de éxito tanto de la crítica como del público en el Teatro Maravillas. Flat Sweet Home recomienda
