Bufé, stage adaptation written and directed by Puerto Rican playwright Roberto Ramos-Perea, of the second intertext of the award-winning novel of the same name, by Yvonne Denis Rosario. Many suspect the worlds of corruption and intrigues that move in the famous "Golden Mile" that is the economic heart of the city of San Juan. A world where big law firms put a price on everything, even the human soul. Into this sordid world comes the young Afro-Puerto Rican lawyer Marina Algas. She arrives full of dreams of glory, hungry for passions and curiosity. She carries as tools the hard experiences of her childhood and her adolescence in the Puerto Rico of the eighties.
Through his look at the long corporate corridors, he will pass the zoo of illustrious men in ties who conspire behind his back, against whom he will react before letting himself be carried away by his skein of lies. The world described by Denis Rosario in his novel published in 2012, is one where the truth has a price, where ambitions, power and discrimination have no borders.
It is a world of whims and luxuries where the only thing that can be saved is the passion for the truth. A horrible world that had to be brought to the place where it belongs, to the theater.
