The theater play “Frei Luís de Sousa”, staged by Miguel Loureiro, takes place at TEMPO – Teatro Municipal de Portimão this Saturday, May 11th, at 21 pm. 

This is the last of three productions to be presented this semester in Portimão within the scope of Rede Eunice, the project for the dissemination of shows produced and co-produced by Teatro Nacional D. Maria II.

From Almeida Garrett's original text, Miguel Loureiro kept the three acts almost intact, cutting only one or two obsolete phrases.

The director tried to «not exacerbate the romantic hysterics» in order to bring the text closer to the contemporary audience, »in a very demanding job for the actors»: João Grosso (Romeiro), Maria Duarte (Madalena), Álvaro Correia (Manuel, who will become Friar Luis de Sousa entering ecclesiastical life), Tónan Quito (Frei Jorge), Ângelo Torres (Telmo) and Carolina Amaral (Maria), in period costumes by José António Tenente.

Tickets for this classic of Portuguese theater cost 10 euros for the general public and XNUMX euros for students and can be purchased here
