1968: Young people across Latin America are leading the revolution, following in Che Guevara’s steps, protesting capitalism and imperialism. In Uruguay – as in many other countries – these protests are met with extreme police violence and government persecution, leading to the incarceration, death, or disappearance of approximately 10,000 people from 1968-1985.
Juan Palmieri is the winner of Casa de las Américas Award. This production will be the first time this play is presented in English.
