The Harriton Theater Company’s production of Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown is this week, and the Harriton Banner took some time to find out more about the show. The story follows Pepa, a TV actress whose lover has left her with no explanation.
As she desperately tries to contact him, she becomes entangled with his crazy ex-wife, and their son and his fiancée. Meanwhile, Pepa’s best friend, Candela, is frantic due to the fear that her newest boyfriend might be a terrorist. The banner asked Candela some questions to find out more.
Harriton Banner: How did you meet your boyfriend, Malik?
Candela: It was one of the most beautiful things that has ever happened to me! Really, there has never been a single experience like it. I was at the bar with my boyfriend at the time, and I happened to catch his eye. Next thing I knew, my heart was racing and he was by my side and it was love at first sight!
HB: What happened to the man you were seeing at that time?
HB: Can you tell us about your friendship with Pepa?
C: Oh, she’s a lovely person! We’ve been friends forever, and I really think I’ve helped her improve herself a lot. I mean, I’m a model, so she’s been able to observe someone who has excellent taste in clothes. Actually, some of her clothes are so nice now that I like to take them for myself! She also is always completely willing to make meals for me, and she’s wonderful to talk to about my problems with. Like Malik.
HB: There have been reports of threatening activity going on in Madrid, specifically in your apartment. Have you noticed any of this?
C: Of course not… Um why would I? No bombs in this apartment! Next question!
HB: What is it like being a model?
C: It’s fantastic! They’re so lucky to have me. Have you seen me? They’ll never get a more attractive model.
HB: Lastly, what can you tell us about Carlos, the son of Pepa’s lover?
C: He’s indescribable. So sweet, and gentle, and kind! He makes me feel things I’ve never quite felt before. I think I might be falling in love with him! He’d honestly be much better off with me than his fiancée.
