Notary Ġużi Loffreda is not one to give up easily! Even though it was another tough year, life is not over. The notary has decided to work even harder, completing contracts at the double. The customer is served, and money is coming in faster…and everyone is happy!

But are they happy? Are Benji-K, the presenter-model-influencer, and his girlfriend the singer Krista-lina happy together? And does Reverend Johnny Bendu truly believe that, ‘Praise the Lord’, Mattea Grech should be his wife? And are Daren Callus and Wendy Thermos really in love or are they simply together because of something exciting like a protest going on?

Thank God for Architect Frankie Concrete and Dr JP Zammit, who are both candidates on the same district, to help them make the right choices. Of course, this depends on whether or not everything is disrupted by the Health Inspector, Mr.Klin de Chanteclair!

Taħdita Teatru | Saturday 26th February

Join us for another edition of Taħdita Teatru about Il-Qarċilla with Dr Olvin Vella, writer Trevor Zahra and writer-musician Alex Vella Gregory.

The research carried on about the old qarċilla as it was during the time of the Knights gives us more information on its environment in the streets and why its discursive content started to change and became more socially acceptable in the eyes of a conservative audience. Since its revival, the il-qarċilla had to adapt itself to the contemporary realities and this caused a change in the content of its writing and the environment in which it happens.
