Verónica Forqué returns to the Arriaga Theatre leading the cast in a play by the eminent Australian author Andrew Bovell, which offers a complex and intense portrait of the mechanisms of family and marriage – from the perspective of four children who strive to be themselves beyond expectations and the love of their parents.

Bob and Frank have worked hard to give their four children the opportunities that they never had. Now that the children have their own lives, it’s time to relax and enjoy. But the changing of the seasons, as a metaphor for the changes that occur in life, will bring out hidden truths, which will make us question whether perhaps the love given in families is excessive.
