Mister Linh flees his war-ravaged country in search of a better future for his granddaughter. Mister Linh doesn’t feel at home in the foreign land where he finds himself, until one day he meets mister Bark.

Mister Bark talks mainly about his wife who died recently. Mister Linh doesn’t understand him but he listens, his little girl on his lap. They meet on the same bench in the park every day until one day everything changes...

Based on a novella by Philippe Claudel La petite fille de monsieur Linh is a moving story about a man who has to flee his country with the little he has left.

Lluís Homar does the show as a monologue. Because Homar is alone on stage and performs all of the roles – the narrator, Mr Linh and Mr Bark – it gains a special flavour, atmosphere and significance. It becomes a show about the power of the imagination and of portrayal.

Lluís Homar tells the story with all of the means available to him: dramatic action, words, images, music, sound, projections….But at the same time it is also a show about loneliness, about the longing to communicate with others – and not in the last place, with the audience. Are we in the head of the narrator? Are Mr Linh and Mr Bark voices in his head? Is telling the story his way of coping with trauma?

The Catalan version is a coproduction with Bito Productions / Temporada Alta Festival Girona (ES) and Teatre Lliure Barcelona (ES).
