WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

A new play from José Rivera, the Academy Award-nominated author of The Motorcycle Diaries. In the Bolivian jungle, Che Guevara is captured and held in a one-room school house. For two days, no one -- not the Bolivian President nor the U.S. State Department -- is able to decide his fate. The young school teacher of the village insists that she be given permission to speak to the famous revolutionary. Her conversations with Che -- based on historical fact -- are the heart of School of the Americas. The cast includes Karina Arroyave, Raul Castillo, Nathan LeBron, John Ortiz, Felix Solis and Patricia Velasquez. Mark Wing-Davey directs this co-production between Labyrinth Theatre Company and The Public Theater.
