“Além de ótima dramaturgia, os textos são um belo exercício para atrizes, iniciantes ou veteranas, que apostam na força da palavra bem escrita. Com poucas rubricas, os monólogos colocam o foco no ator - é ele, ou melhor, ela quem está no centro da ação. O tom eventualmente sórdido e transgressor com que as palavras de Afonso ganham vida delicia o leitor e propicia uma viagem imaginária pela cena onde o humor atua como revelador de possíveis, e improváveis, humanidades.”
Marisa Naspolini, atriz e pesquisadora teatral

Um documento a não perder, no ano em que se cumprem cem anos do nascimento de Álvaro Cunhal.
Figura incontornável do século XX português, Álvaro Cunhal deixou no país a memória de um político combativo, de carácter recto e fiel aos seus princípios. Ficou para a História o seu compromisso na luta contra a ditadura e a sua dedicação ao Partido Comunista Português, de que foi até agora o líder mais destacado. Todos recordam o seu porte sério e reservado. Mas muito poucos conhecem o homem por trás do político.
Pela mão de Judite Sousa, um dos mais prestigiados rostos do jornalismo português, conhecemos o homem que foi Álvaro Cunhal. E descobrimos que, afinal, para lá do semblante sério, escondia-se um homem afável, com sentido de humor e muito dedicado à família. Um homem como os outros.
«Um irmão extremamente afectuoso, sempre preocupado com a família, que teve uma grande importância na minha formação, no sentido de olhar para os outros, preocupar-me com os outros, de nos darmos aos outros.»
