Renowned Costa Rican novel by author Lara Rios, adapted by playwright Denisse Duncan for the Terruño Espressivo Cultural Association. (2019)

Arturo Pol writes a diary, but it is not a common diary: it is a “porme-diario”. His diary is a very unique adventure in which Arturo tells us how he sees his life, his family, school; He tells us about his concerns and his funniest moments. It reminds us of that wonderful time in which the world is summed up in a soccer ball and a tree full of guavas, that time in which our mother smelled of love and “bare just out of the oven”.
