THE GIRLS IN THE 305
In the 1968, six girls from the working and peasant class live in a boarding school far from their homes. A boarding school which becomes an open window to the world and to the social and personal journey of every one of them. The staging one of William Shakespeare’s plays named The storm will do the rest.
The historical context (the post-war and the lasts years of the dictatorship, the may of 68, the murders in the United States of America of Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy, the Vietnam war…) will be more than a backdrop in the lives of the girls in the 305.
Six teenage girls live in the same room of a boarding school. They come from different villages of the country. It is 1968 and the world is changing. All of them come from poor families and each has left the village for different reasons, they are the first woman in their families that can study, and they know that their only chance at thrive is to use this opportunity. In the middle of the year, Angélica, their tutor, suggests staging a play: The tempest, of William Shakespeare. The character of the characters and their will melt int the interpretation. The environment in the female boarding school will mix with the social and political reality of the era: last years of the dictatorship, the French may of 68, the murders in the United States of America of Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy, the Vietnam war, the presence of soldiers in the air base, the presence of religion, the desire of freedom, the definition of the sexual identity and first loves.
