Sinopsis: Carmela y Paulino son una pareja de actores que cruzan por error la línea que separa a los dos bandos contrincantes de la última Guerra civil española. De forma sorpresiva recalan en la villa de Belchite -plaza que el Ejército Nacional acaba de “liberar” y así ambos artistas se verán forzados a improvisar una velada teatral para celebrar la derrota del enemigo. Sin embargo, lo que comienza como un divertido homenaje a los vencedores, termina como una trágica comedia.

★★★★ “Lockyer has one hell of a story and he tells it rivetingly well” The Times
Keep on Walking Federico is a funny and moving tale of a journey across borders – a journey through the midnight of the soul…
It is the brand new play by the writer and performer of Living with the Lights On, an ATC production that has been acclaimed by critics and by audiences from Bristol to Barcelona (including two sell-out runs at the Young Vic).
“And in that moment I realised… things had got a bit grim.”
Mark is struggling. Work, relationships, going grey. Add to that, he can’t even get his head around Snapchat. Then a letter arrives. Mark has no choice but to leave…with no idea if he’ll ever come back.
The play tells the story of Mark’s journey into an uncertain future. Being Mark, he decides he should experience it in sunny Spain. But there, he encounters incidents and people that keep reminding him that living in the present and looking forward to the future doesn’t always mean escaping from the past. With time to contemplate and as his thoughts turn to his relationships with his parents, his upbringing and the experiences that have brought him to this point, Mark’s challenge is to find the ability to move forward whilst acknowledging what is behind him.
