Hambre come is a five and a half minute puppet theatre played only for two people. The story develops inside a suitcase with two peepholes through which you can spy what happens inside a restaurant. Without words, the carefully chosen music, heard through earphones, is indispensable to give meaning to the piece and to get the spectator into a unique atmosphere.

“Te quiero guapa y sencilla como yo te conocí, no tienes que engalanarte pa nadie más que pa mí, ni tu eres mujer moderna ni quiero que lo aparentes, que yo te prefiero antigua que lo antiguo vale siempre, que con el triguito limpio todo el mundo te compare, que por fuera y por dentro te parezcas a mi madre…”
