This is the story of four childhood friends who gather for what promises to be an enjoyable evening celebrating the fact that one of them will become father for the first time. While awaiting the arrival of the wife of the future father a heated discussion to decide the name of the firstborn takes place. As the plot progresses, characters unmask the true feelings they have for each other, thus revealing certain hypocrisy and resentments that all of them possess and hide under the guise of friendship.

This is a work that portrays aspects of friendship, hypocrisy and human pettiness in a comical manner.

Panama’s presentation is directed by Hannia Woodman and features performances by Gabriel Perez Matteo, Enithzabel Castrellón, Carlos Caballero, Yimara Perez Royko and Jorge Fernandez.

Tickets cost $30 and are on sale in PanaTickets.com or at the box office the day of the event.
