Since the publication of his first novel, Alex, the recipient of a prestigious award, has been basking in his reputation as an author in vogue while collecting his copyright money. He is about to become the recipient of the Cruz de Caballeros de las Artes y las Letras Award bestowed by the Ministry of Culture. His wife Gloria, whose fortune and connections played a big role in enhancing his reputation is helping him get his speech ready for the ceremony. However, this is exactly the moment when Alex receives the unexpected visit of an unknown woman who could put his “success story” in jeopardy.

Jean Pierre Martinez, himself a victim of plagiarism a few years ago, knows only too well what an author feels when an impostor “steals” his creation. After winning his case against the plagiarist, Martinez decided to turn his painful experience into a farce. A play, though, cannot be turned merely into censure or condemnation or even revenge. Refusing to play the role of victim, Martinez chooses black humor to offer an implacable picture of the literary world in all its naked pettiness and pomposity.

All performances are in Spanish.
