Niebla narrates a dialogue between two women via video call. A play about friendship in old age.


This virtual production, written by award-winning playwright Isidora Stevenson (Hilda Peña), directed by Soledad Gaspar and performed by renowned actresses Gloria Münchmeyer and Gabriela Hernández relays the emotional videocall conversation between two women. In an encounter filled with emotion, affection and technology, Niebla talks of friendship in old age, the passing of time and being forgotten.

Nena and Carmen have known each other all their lives. For a long time, they were employee and housewife, but life and time have led them to forge a much stronger bond than that of a working relationship. Their past connects them in spite of distance and confinement. The play takes place the day they talk for the first time via videocall. Virtual reality lends itself to a conversation they have never had face-to face. In an emotional encounter that revisits different times of their lives and memories, they look back at issues such as affection and memory, the role of women, their awareness of their rights, putting things off and what is left behind as time passes.

The pandemic has brought to light the brutal abandonment of and solitude felt by seniors. The play is an invitation to think about old age as something we will all experience sooner or later. Niebla is a reencounter and a goodbye, with emotional performances.


This production marked the start of the Teatro Finis Terrae’s 2021 Virtual Season, joining its listings under the hashtag #CulturaFinisEnCasa in a season of plays created specifically for the virtual format and performed by outstanding casts, well-known in Chile.
