A HUNDRED YEARS OLD

AHUNDRED YEARS OLD 

Synopsis: 

 

"A Hundred Years Old" was written in 1909.

 

It is a simple story of Spanish family life; but the characters are handled with extreme simplicity, poetry and charm, and provide a fine example of expert technique in smooth and facile play writing. Nothing is forced; no labouring for effects.

 

The story concerns the preparations for the birthday celebration of a most likeable and discerning centenarian, living in the small Andalusian town of Arenales.
