Spain, September 1931. While the articles that will make up the new constitution are being debated in Madrid, a group of feminist women gather at the casino in their town to fight for women’s suffrage. The men of the town become alarmed, so much that they ask for help from an expert in the matter, who comes from the capital, to put an end to, finally, movements like this one. Will the men achieve their goal and will the women stop their fight?
Brief history of the group
At the beginning of 1988, the Culture Commission of Corella City Council organized courses, including theatre techniques, in the town’s culture centre. And so began the adventures of the Grupo Alhama de Teatro. Over the years, the group has staged seventeen plays from various genres: comedy, drama, children’s stories and street theatre.
At the end of 1990s, the group decided to become independent, so it ceased to be the municipal theatre group of Corella and became known as Grupo Alhama de Teatro, GAT. Today, Grupo Alhama de Teatro is a big family, where all its members collaborate and sacrifice a lot of time for the group’s projects to move forward, and to share and live unforgettable and unique experiences, full of magic, that make spectators have a very good time. And they do all this in an altruistic way, receiving only applause as the reward.
