Writer: Samuel Beckett. Directors: Miquel Gorriz and Àlex Ollé (original idea from Moisés Maicas and Pere Arquillué). Starring: Pere Arquillué.

Pere Arquillué stars alone in this half-comedy, half-tragedy written by Samuel Beckett in 1946. The actor plays a man who was thrown out of his house after his father’s death and gives all the grisly details of his first (and only) love with a prostitute who seduces him. (In Catalan.)
