Two theatre performances directed by Giacomo Scalisi and with texts by Afonso Cruz and Sandro William Junqueira, which put an end to the highland theatre saga started in 2017 and which has already had 7 episodes since then.
Based on the secular tradition of producing medronho firewater, an element very present in the life of the population and in the highlands’ landscape, this theatre project was created based on the drink that is born from the fruit, which gave birth to the book “Medronho”.
This time we invite the audience to watch a night long theatre marathon, which includes all the episodes since the beginning, and a new episode that puts an end to the saga. Taking place in the distilleries, the cathedrals of the medronho, and in the nature of the Serra de Monchique, this performance includes dinner and of course medronho firewater to end this saga in beauty (or maybe not).
NOTE

This theatre performance is in Portuguese language.
