La Buena Vecindad – A Comical Commentary on Human Behaviour (The Good Neighbourhood)
In the tranquil Canary Islands, Delirium Theatre brings a unique and humorous portrayal of a couple’s life disrupted by bothersome newcomers in their apartment complex. In “La Buena Vecindad” (The Good Neighbourhood), the couple, Manolo and Carmen, lead an otherwise monotonous and peaceful existence. The advent of their noisy neighbours disrupts their calm, forcing them into a predicament that they find challenging to navigate.
Through a comedic lens, we witness Manolo and Carmen consider countless, increasingly ridiculous strategies to eliminate their unwelcome neighbours. Their principal aim is to restore the serenity they were eagerly anticipating in their twilight years.
“Good Neighbourhood” is not just a comedy about the trials of daily life, but it also reflects on the excuses, self-delusions, and justifications people invent to evade confronting a problematic and unavoidable truth.
This amusing narrative adeptly deciphers the human tendency to sidestep discomfort and avoid facing realities that challenge our perception and peace. By doing so, it offers a thought-provoking commentary on the lengths we would go to preserve the tranquillity of our existence.
