Easter May Week
Florence, high summer. The flowers are in bloom, the choirs are singing and the tourists are horrifying monsters with a taste for human flesh.
Fortunately, humanity stumbles across one last line of defense, as Nikita - a Venezuelan opera-singer who moonlights as an assassin - teams up with Dante - an Italian hotel receptionist with a penchant for murdering annoying holiday-makers. It's a race against time as, together, the two of them must find the source of the tourism virus before they too become infected.
Ultimately, it's a heart-warming and hilarious story with one simple message: true love conquers all - up to and including wolfmen in flip-flops.
Written by acclaimed Venezuelan playwright Rodolfo Santana, 'Tourists' Influence' comes to the British stage for the first time, in a translation by Charles Philip Thomas.
