Paulina Salas, a former political prisoner, and her husband Gerardo Escobar, a lawyer, live at a time of transition as their country shifts from dictatorship to democracy. After Gerardo is rescued from a flat tire on a country road by a doctor, Roberto Miranda, Roberto visits the couples’ home only to find himself accused of rape and torture by Paulina. Paulina, insisting he is the sadistic doctor who tortured her as a blindfolded prisoner, takes Roberto hostage, and puts him on trial so he will confess his crimes. Roberto insists that he is innocent which leads to an all-night stand-off between the three. Complex relationships and thrilling twists and turns bring this story of love, betrayal, revenge, and forgiveness to a surprising conclusion that will have audiences talking long after the show has ended.
This show contains mature subject matter and language. Not recommended for children under the age of 13.
Directed by Kate Peckham
