About the event

We are excited to continue our 2024 Theatrical  Season on World Theatre Day with Andreea Tănase's captivating play, "All’s Well That Ends". A show created by the British theatre company Kibo Productions under the direction of Leo Bacica, the performance stars talented actors Nicoleta Marica (Romania) and Gerardo Cabal (Mexico). After the London premiere in October 2023, at the Barons Court Theatre, the show was nominated for the prestigious Standing Ovation Award by London Pub Theatres. 

"All’s Well That Ends" is a two-character play that invites the audience to the divorce party of Daria and Radu. The performance takes us on a journey into the intimate universe of a couple's life, where the two celebrate the most important moments of their existence together. He loves beer and dogs, she is allergic, but they can have a whiskey together. After 11 years of marriage, the protagonists will try, in turn, to reminisce about the pleasant and less pleasant moments, recalling with nostalgia, irony, and humour everything that made them fall in love and embark on a journey together.
