The midnight friend



Silvia, Valentina and Marieta share a flat. Marieta, a young university student, is dumped by her boyfriend, and goes to pieces. To cope with her pain, she invents the perfect boyfriend, following the same psychological process of creating an imaginary friend that children use when they are lonely. Ángel, the knight in shining armour, recreates the Pygmalion myth for the twenty-first century. The comedy provides an opportunity to discuss the relationship between men and women, a discussion of misunderstanding, of a mutual lack of comprehension and of solitude in contemporary society.
