In a nutshell
Set in an imaginary country, this dark comedy focusses on the socio-political landscape in the aftermath of a corrupt and unsuitable head of state.
After the Summer is a dark comedy is set in recent times and told through a series of flashbacks, in which we witness the gradual rise of a man of means in the world of politics - the rise of a man with an insatiable thirst for power. Fuelled by opportunistic people around him, we watch the political machinations that exploit the disillusionment of the masses with the political situation to elect Mr Miracle Miranda as the President of Delimia.
This fast-paced play focuses on Miracle Miranda and his inner circle- Miracle's wife Madeline Miranda, a former film diva, Judas Inquisitor, ex-army commander now his internal security and army chief, Cerebro Astucia, his prime minister, and Bonita Menina, his foreign affairs and cultural minister.
Infused with black comedy and at times surreal moments, we see the grim and fascinating transformation and are left to ponder on the fate of Dilemia – and to consider the possible fate of many countries in our world today.
