On the 11th of September, 1973, the controversial president of Chile, Salvador Allende entered the Palacio de la Moneda, headquarters of his government, at 7:30AM. He died there at approximately two in the afternoon of the same day. Now, Rodolfo C. Quebleen, an Argentinian-American journalist, and current editor of Hora Hispana (the Spanish weekly feature in the Daily News) has written a play speculating on Allende's thoughts and feelings during the last tumultuous hours of his life. While unfolding in real time, the 90-minute monologue play takes place in Allende's mind, mixing the past with the present in equal measure, shifting backwards and forwards through his eventful life. Ramiro Sandoval portrays the embattled leader in a production directed by German A. Jaramillo.
