MADRID — El 14 de marzo nos confinaron por decreto y mi obra de teatro, Qué locura enamorarme yo de ti, estrenada en una sala de Madrid a fines de enero de este año, que había empezado prometedoramente la temporada con cinco funciones agotadas, tuvo que suspenderse. Nos vimos obligadas a devolver las entradas vendidas sin saber si era su sentencia de muerte o si la pieza que había escrito y que protagonizábamos mi familia y yo, bajo la dirección de Mariana de Althaus, tendría una segunda oportunidad sobre las tablas. La tuvo.

Hace un mes, justo cuando empezaba a pensar que tendría que organizar una función de teatro por Zoom, volvimos al teatro de verdad. No sé cómo lo hicimos. Madrid, ciudad pandémica de España por excelencia, aún supuraba, los rebrotes colmaban los titulares y mientras segregaban barrios enteros, reducían horarios y aforos, cuando ya no lo esperábamos, nos dejaron volver. No hay gobierno, progresista o no, que aguante la decisión de mantener abiertas las salas de apuesta y no los teatros o los parques infantiles. Allí estábamos otra vez, seis meses después levantábamos el telón.
