“About lies and secrets” is a comedy freely inspired by the universe of playwright Nelson Rodrigues. From the text to the lighting, to the costumes and makeup, strength emerges in this montage that has already won awards at several festivals. It is a dynamic, agile show with a funny, grotesque and very intelligent humor. 


A comedy based on a study of Nelson Rodrigues' universe where all the secrets and lies arise from Alice's pregnancy.
At the age of fourteen, Alice goes to the gynecologist at the behest of her father, Dr. Ismael. We then know the truth: Alice is going to be a mother!
Chaos ensues in the family. The mother, sisters, sons-in-law and neighbors are shocked! But Doctor Ismael is convinced that one of the culprits lives at home and must be one of the sons-in-law. All the secrets and lies arise from Alice's pregnancy. And the neighbors? They know everything! The perfect family: Does it exist?
