A couple of years ago, Pedro Gil visited the Aljube Museum, former Aljube prison, where his grandfather was arrested by the Salazar regime. Written in one of the walls of the exhibition he found the five Don’ts of the Estado Novo in bold letters: we DON’T discuss the country, we DON’T discuss authority, we DON’T discuss family, we DON’T discuss work and we DON’T discuss God. Suddenly, he came up with the idea of making a Don Juan. This Don Juan doesn’t trust the ghost of the Comendatore. The ghost wants him to shake his hand. Don Juan senses it’s a bad idea to shake the hand of a ghost he himself killed. He then decides not to be present at the supper they agreed upon. Don Juan runs away, but where to? This is a comedy.
