They describe the show as follows:
“A military farce from Mexico with love”
It is a wonderfully funny show that combines slapstick, dance, bouffant and farce to tell the story of a military outpost desparate for recruits.
The company La Piara is Artus Chavez, Fernando Cordova and Madeleine Sierra Carrascal. They are superb comics and actors.
