A SPECIAL DAY
Mexican actors performing in English. A play set in Italy would seem rather odd if theatre was not all about make believe. Inspired by Italian film Una Giornata Particolare, actors Ana Graham and Antonio Vega use a few props, a piece of chalk and the power of imagination to create a life changing, bittersweet human drama, about a chance encounter between two neighbors, in Rome, at a time of political unrest.
