Premiered in 2018 as part of the celebration of CCB’s 25th anniversary, Fausto told the story of a spectacle with unbridled ambition that never got to happen, despite absorbing a substantial part of the State Budget and creating a national tragedy – all permanently reported on television. There was also an attempt to instate a populist regime, which ultimately failed. Returning to the controversial reception of this show that never happened, mala voadora invited Alex Cassal to write a monologue for Jorge Andrade: inFausto. Fausto brought together around 100 people on stage; inFausto is a monologue. But that doesn’t mean the scale of the intrigue is diminished. Much to the contrary. Frustrated with Fausto, Jorge Andrade fled the country, wandered around several countries and ended up working in a troll farm writing fake news, where he eventually discovered, on the dark web, that Fausto had been after all the target of a Machiavellian international conspiracy.
