A Noite

7 – 24 April 2022

Synopsis

Saramago’s first dramatic work that the writer dedicates to Luzia Maria Martins, the person who “thought him capable of writing a play”. The night that this play talks about went down in history: from the 24th to the 25th of April, 1974. The action takes place in the newsroom of a newspaper in Lisbon and the author warns: “Any similarity with real life characters and their sayings and deeds is pure coincidence. Evidently.” (Diário de Notícias, October 9, 1998).
