Spanish Angst is a high concept comedy set in 1997 and centred on a strong female protagonist. Bella, a 23 year old marketing graduate, leaves the USA behind to find greener grass in sunny Spain. Despite her Spanish parents and happy childhood memories of Spain, Bella’s Madrid experience doesn’t match her expectations.
The owner of the firm where she works believes that all around him exist solely to increase his personal wealth. Her direct boss, Marga, is a jealous forty-something who delights in exploiting her and insulting her dress sense. Her attempts to find a different job seem surreal, she can’t get her t.v. fixed, she can’t get a decent meal, no one seems to understand her accent and her matchmaking flat mate keeps setting her up with losers. Bella is just too American, feminist and goal oriented for the people around her and the cultural clashes provide constant entertainment. She is also too stubborn to just give up.

Based on over twelve years of the author’s experience working and seeking work in Madrid, this is more than just a comedic treatment of how different attitudes and ideologies can be from one country to the next. It is also a real reflection of the work environment for women in Madrid. So if you know anyone who dreams of moving abroad to enjoy a laid back culture, have them read this first!!
