Fiesta which recently opened, is an adaptation of Hemingway’s novel, “The Sun Also Rises”. According to the Telegraph, this is an ” intense, raw and compelling piece of theatre”
From the Trafalgar “. American writer Jake, is one of ‘the lost generation’ post WWI living a bohemian lifestyle in Paris in the 1920s, with fellow expat, novelist Robert, until the arrival of the irresistible Lady Brett Ashley throws their lives into turmoil. Jake’s obsession with bullfighting takes them to Pamplona, Spain, to experience the testosterone fuelled world of bullfighting. In the sweltering heat of Spain they meet the beguiling bullfighter Romero and a violent spectacle unfolds.
The explosive jazz band, Trio Farouche, perform live in Fiesta and the kinetic energy between cast and musicians erupts in Spain, with the actors becoming saturated with red wine as it spills from the set – capturing the passionate spirit of Pamplona’s Fiesta, within the intimate space of Trafalgar Studio 2.”
