Tenant (9 Numantia Street)

Tenant (9 Numantia Street) is a play awarded in 2018 with the Calderón de la Barca Prize for being “an urgent text, necessary and committed to social reality and for its suggestive scenic language.”

Premiered in Spain at the National Dramatic Center in 2019, it now arrives in London in its English version.

Tenant is the drama of a citizen who is forced to leave his apartment due to a disproportionate rent increase. It is an epic comedy of these times of crisis: the economy will be destiny; the villain, a landlord we don’t know; the hero, a young man raised in abundance who comes of age when the housing bubble explodes.

There is a lot of humor to tell a story that is not funny at all. There will be a party.
