Guillermo Cacace | El Mar de Noche

Brilliant, heart-rending monologue on unrequited love
Somewhere in a seaside hotel a middle-aged man stares out across the waves. He is waiting without avail for his younger lover, although he knows meeting is out of the question. Their relationship is a thing of the past, but the man is unable to extricate himself from the emotional web he is caught up in. As simple as the concept of unrequited love may appear to be, Luis Machín's performance in El Mar de Noche (The Sea of the Night) is in equal measure brilliant in its portrayal of the desperation that follows. His moving monologue, written by the esteemed film and theatre director Santiago Loza, evokes strong recognition. A performance that finds the words to so empathetically describe the indescribable, fearsome void no one hopes to experience, yet so many have at times confronted – such a play is well worth a broken heart. If you do have to experience unadulterated heartbreak, let it be the beauteous heartache of Luis Machín.

“Loza writes magically .... Cacace makes the right decisions ... Machín hypnotises ....”

- Juan Carlos Antón, La Prenza
