A young woman and her four alter-egos fight for survival.
Fragment from an adaptation of Mexican playwright Luis Mario Moncada’s Opción Múltiple, to be staged by GTL in March, 2018. Opción Múltiple tells the story of Diana, a young woman who has five contrasting personalities, born out of childhood trauma, that don’t allow her to live a normal life. The problem is that her alter-egos (Julia, Petra, Olga, Sabuesa) try to intervene and influence her decision-making. With the help of her therapist, the play’s protagonist will try to master her alter-egos and will also discover the truth about the trauma that disturbs her. The fragment is made up of a series of interactions between the four alter-egos, the therapist and Diana. There will be live music.
