Playwright Aristides Vargas brings to life love, deception and repression all driven by a dysfunctional family. The head of the family is almost always the father, but in this family he is the perpetrator of direct assault to all of its members. The well written play will entertain you, move you, and make you laugh at a family that mirrors society in all of its sarcasm.
It is a thought-provoking and poetic piece about a young girl who is sold to a much older general. Forced to live in the harsh and realistic world of military power and repression, the maiden, barely at the beginning of her adolescence, attempts to run away and is hit by a bus when her husband and commander attempts to engage in sexual intercourse with her. While battling for her life in a hospital, she looks back over the events of her past only to realize she must make one of the most important decisions she has ever made.
The play explores with breathtaking imagery contemporary relationships of love and deception. Director Cora Cardona of Teatro Dallas presents this masterful work in a unique and imaginative exploration. The production stars J.P Cano, Lydia Enriquez, Laura L. Watson, Marti Ethridge, Edgar Estrada, Armando Monsivais and Sergio Rodriguez.
