Let he who has not had a happening (ocasión) in his/her life raise their hand. Juggle your memory, take a good look at yourself, you’ll be sure to find it. This play is in its title. It is a sound homage to all those who live: clever, dumb, poor, rich, dreamers or realists with childhoods that were joyful or with miserable childhoods. Because life is not that fucked up, enjoy it while you can. There is no happening (ocasión) for the dead.
