Mexican Actor Ari Telch, currently enjoying great success for his appearance in the hit soap-opera Mirada de Mujer, is rehearsing a new play by Mauricio Pichardo (Cuatro Equis, Bajo Las Sabanas) called Dos Contra Uno(a?), which means in English Two Against Him (or Her?). The comedy reveals an unusual romantic relationship in which three characters are involved, and according to Telch, the play will have a strong social content, in the style of the story of the soap-opera Mirada de Mujer which talked about AIDS, abortion and other topics that interest today's audiences.
Sergio Kleiner and Gloria Izaguirre are also in the cast of Dos Contra, which is scheduled to open mid-April at Mexico City's Teatro Wilberto Canton.
