On May 8, 1938, while Italy celebrates the rise of Fascism, an over-worked housewife and a mysterious bachelor meet by chance.
Set in Mussolini's Italy in 1938, this beautiful production tells the story of two neighbors and a chance encounter that radically changes their views on life, love, and politics as they forge a friendship over the course of one very special day.
A Special Day is one of the finest examples of the power of theater. It’s funny, touching, smart, and incredibly relevant to the world we live in today. The storytelling tools used by the brilliant Ana Graham and Antonio Vega are a love letter to the theater. It is the type of magic that nothing on YouTube or Netflix will ever be able to match. Their engagement with you, the audience, through their storytelling is the reason why theater has existed for over 3000 years. And it will continue to do so.
