Performance Dates & Times

This tense, adult drama, set in an unnamed South American country post coup, relates the story of a political activist who was imprisoned, tortured and raped.  She never saw the face of her captor, but can never forget his voice.  So what happens when her husband unknowingly invites this man home for a drink?  Recognition?  Revenge?

This award winning play demands us to consider fundamental questions about the nature of justice.
