Performance Dates & Times

The story revolves around a political activist and her husband, a human rights lawyer, living in a South American country post-Coup.  During that Coup, she was imprisoned, tortured and raped by an unseen captor, hearing only his voice. 
What will she do when her husband invites a stranger into their home and she recognizes that voice?

This thought provoking play raises fundamental questions about the nature of justice.

We hope to see you there and thank you for supporting community theatre.
