El Crédito at Repertorio Español

El Crédito at Repertorio Español

Written by Jordi Garcelán and directed by Fernando Then, the play tells the unforgettable story of an ordinary man and his attempts at getting a small bank loan on which his livelihood depends.

He cannot offer any guarantees or properties, only his word of honor and a promise that he will eventually pay back every single penny. The rejection of the loan by the Branch Manager leaves them both in a very delicate and hilarious situation. Featuring actors Luis Carlos de la Lombana and Txemi Parra.
