Psychologists say that a move is one of the biggest causes of stress and anxiety that a human being can suffer. Is there anything worse than a move? Yes. Having to do it in record time and also have nothing organized. This is the starting point of “La Caja”, first play of Clèment Michel. A three-act comedy with vaudeville structure, and the classic elements of the secret genre and lies as pieces of a fresh, youthful and hilarious puzzle.
“The show is about a group of friends who love each other,” says Clèment Michel. Modernizer of French vaudeville, Michel knows very well the generation of which the thirty-something speaks because he belongs to it. The characters of the Caja carry and bring some boxes in which they carry their outstanding accounts, the stored questions, the truths that were never told. But they are friends, good friends, who not only accompany each other in the moves but also survive them.
