WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Pulitzer-Prize-winning playwright and Miami native Nilo Cruz spins this intriguing and haunting tale set in an unidentified, war-torn Latin American country where two peasant youths, Mateo and Clara, create an imaginary world to cope with the starvation and oppression of their daily lives. Bonded by an emotional link that is both innocent and erotic, the couple decide to run away to the Bolina, a mythical city where lost kites "go to die." With its imaginative use of poetic realism, Night Train to Bolina is an adventure in fantasy, mysticism, and love.
