The Regional Library receives the playwright Fulgencio Martínez Lax within the cycle of literary encounters 'Fresh ink'

The Murcian author will dialogue tomorrow with the readers about his career and his latest play, 'Háblame'

The Regional Library of Murcia, a space managed by the Ministry of Tourism and Culture, hosts tomorrow, May 9 (7:30 pm), a new literary meeting with the Murcian playwright Fulgencio Martínez Lax, framed in the cycle 'Fresh Ink'.

Accompanied by the journalist Patricio Peñalver, Martínez Lax will share with the audience details of his work as a theater author and, in particular, of his work 'Háblame'.

After the talk and the conversation held by both, a conversation will open with the attendees who wish to intervene.

The cycle 'Fresh ink' of the Regional Library has as main objective the promotion of the authors of the Region of Murcia who have recently published through dynamic meetings with readers.

'Háblame' is starring a family consisting of a widowed mother (Isabel), a lonely and rebellious son (Javier) and a grandmother (Adela) who begins to give symptoms of confusion and forgetfulness.

Immersed in an incipient dementia, the grandmother clings to the memories of her youth, which causes characters of the past to appear like her husband, her brother or her parents.

All will travel through his memory showing a special generosity and tenderness that will serve as an anchor for his grandson to clear the ghosts and demons that generate violent acts in him.

In the middle of them all is Isabel, who struggles from bewilderment, from fatigue, but also from love to care for her mother and rescue her son from the situation in which he finds himself.
