En el Túnel un Pájaro

Madrid, Spain

En el Túnel un Pájaro is a theater play written by Paloma Pedrero.

Ambrosia’s love for his brother Quique, separated from her when they were very young, takes her to participate in a reality show to find him.

Quique is Enrique, an old playwright of great prestige, grumpy, surly… For him, Ambrosia is an unwelcome shadow that brings back memories of a past devoid of affection.

The meeting of these two brothers makes us to consider many questions and it’s a invitation to reflect on such universal themes as love, honesty, privacy, life and dignity… at the time of death.

The stage play represented the Comunidad de Madrid in the Independent theater cycle “Cultura viva”.

Directed by María Jesús Varona and Loly Rodríguez.


Spanish playwright Paloma Pedrero studied Sociology at Madrid’s Universidad Complutense before becoming involved in the reestablishment of Madrid’s theater scene following the death of Franco as a member of the Cachivache theater group. Her first play, La llamada de Lauren, in which she also played the role of Rosa, was staged in 1985.
Since then she has written much more material, acted both on the stage and on television, and directed productions of her own works. She has also cultivated a prolific career as a conference speaker and essayist.
Paloma Pedrero won the 1987 Premio Tirso de Molina for Invierno de luna alegre.
Pedrero’s plays are, for the most part, short quasi-comedies that explore questions of identity, the subversion of gender roles, and the nature of individual freedom in postmodern society, based around a neorealist model.
