I’d Rather Goya Robbed Me of My Sleep than Some Other Son of a Bitch


Written by Rodrigo García / Translated from Spanish by William Gregory

The Old 505 Theatre, Newtown

22 August – 2 Septembre 2017

“Rodrigo García’s argument for the soothing power of high art is expressed with crackling energy.” – The Guardian, UK

A dissolute father has a master plan to educate his sons: at night, break into the Prado Museum to see Goya’s black paintings while eating chorizo, drinking scotch and sniffing coke. On the side, fly in a hip philosopher from Germany as their guide. Sixty minutes of provocation and screaming to survive. Anything but f…king Disneyland!

Rodrigo García’s seminal work I’d Rather Goya Robbed Me of My Sleep than Some Other Son of a Bitch’ will introduce local audiences to one of Europe’s premier playwrights and his political, powerful, violent and extremely controversial style.

This one man show is set to challenge the ideals we hold true with “an explosive mix of vitality and disarray” – Libération, France
