The Conduct of Life
Tickets and Information
WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The Conduct of Life shows the audience that in life, and especially times of war, it is our choice how we conduct ourselves in the face of violence and horror. The play premiered in NYC in 1985 and is a powerful, timeless piece with haunting characters. Orlando, having rapidly achieved his military promotion, becomes a self-acknowledged professional torturer who now uses violence to subdue and destroy others, including his wife, Leticia. His longtime friend and colleague, Alejo, watches Orlando's behavior helplessly. Meanwhile, despite living this reality where the world has forsaken her, 12 year old Nena, whom Orlando holds captive, teaches those around her to live each day in the best possible way and not become blind with rage towards those that are unkind. Even those who torture.
