When the audience enters the room, there is a man at the table, in front of a computer, writing. When it is over, he sends the text to a printer, gets up to pick up the printed sheets, sits again, and starts reading. Looks like he is working in an office, not doing a theatre. The text that reads speaks of the moment when the show that the audience is watching ends, that is, the man speaks of himself on that stage but projecting himself in the near future: in about an hour. And then it continues: the exit from the room, the meeting with the public, the walk through the city, an eventual passage through a bar, the going home...
This man is Jorge Andrade and he predicts his future following a script writing by the playwright Deborah Pearson that is titled The Future Show. The script has guidelines that help structure your vision of the future, but the task is not easy. Every day, Jorge must imagine what will happen to him, and those close to him, until the day he dies. Watch your children grow up, maybe have grandchildren, continue to do theatre, go on holiday, take part in celebrations. You see your family disappearing more or less by order of age, your body degrades, you have unrecoverable heartbreak; the future will certainly be that too. Anyway, you are going to have to invent a death for yourself.
