In an adventure true to Indiana Jones style, Teresa seeks to delve into the boys’ world, with a lot of conviction and some naïveté. Interpreted by Cláudia Missura, who had the company of her inseparable friend, Mrs Big-Head, played by the composer and instrumentalist Tata Fernandes, also responsible for the songs.
The award-winning play, which made its stage début in 2007, is based on the unveiling of the masculine, and also shows the reencounter between Teresa and the father figure. With delicateness and humour, within an intimist climate, O Menino Teresa (Boy Teresa) proposes a discussion about gender.
