Casimiro Vico is an idealistic tailor who’s forever dreaming of being an actor. At night, his workshop opens its doors to all kinds of people from the world of theater - including directors, playwrights and actors - to drink, smoke and dress up for free. At one of these get-togethers, they convince him to sell his humble workshop and buy a company that has gone bust, where he’ll be the leading actor and his wife, Carmen, the leading lady. With high hopes, the tailor agrees, but he encounters problems on the way and is betrayed by his group. Blind and stubborn, everything goes downhill and he sees his dream of joining the theater cut short.

Written by Chilean playwright Armando Moock in 1937, this version in radio theater format has been adapted by director, playwright and actress Elisa Zulueta.
