In 1957 and 1958, Bernardo Santareno worked as the on-board doctor for the Portuguese cod fleet that headed off every year to Newfoundland and Greenland. He drew small pictures with stories, portraits, descriptions, landscapes, and tragedies on sketchpads, which were not only one of the most remarkable documentation of the reality that was ours at the time, but also an amazing literary work. These paintings are the origin of “O Lugre”, the play that was produced by Amélia Rey Colaço, at the National Theatre. In this case, Jorge Silva Melo has adapted the play for radio.
