“Rodriguez’s conviction and the power of her despairing delivery makes it compelling” -The Scotsman

Pakita joins a “lonely hearts” group unfolding an unexpected confession. From broken hearted lover to psychiatric patient, Caballero paints a picture of love and addiction before unveiling an audacious final act in which life imitates art in the most tragic way.

In 2010, Greenwich Theatre co-produced Pakita: Stimulating, Bitter and Necessary, by award winning playwright Ernesto Caballero. This show- performed both in English and in Spanish- enjoyed very successful runs at the New End Theatre in Hampstead, Sala Triangulo (Madrid) Teatro Latea in New York and at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
