It's Friday evening and we are attending a community theater offering of the original review "Expats - A Musical Comedy Review". Proceeds go to the charity Hearts of Gold, and our friend Evelyn has arranged for tickets.
We arrive a few minutes before the doors open. If it wasn't for the line of expats William and I would have walked right past the Fishbon del Sur "theater". It turns out to be a large house in El Centro rented by an expat couple. The covered interior courtyard has been converter into the theater with a stage and approximately 50 chairs.
This is an original production - both the dialogue and the majority of the songs. It follows the path of Frank and Maureen, a newly retired couple from Ohio as they create their new life in Cuenca. The audience of expats laughs loudly at the first song "Expats, We Are Expats" because we see so much truth in it (and are able to laugh at ourselves).
