Donmar Warehouse revives Argentine Manuel Puig's play about inmates in a Latin American jail, adapted from his own 1976 novel of the same name. Charlotte Westenra directs.
Under an authoritarian regime, Molina and Valentin are imprisoned in a South American jail. Despite their differences, they come to depend on one another and friendship develops. Powerful, lyrical and compelling, the play examines friendship on many levels as both characters struggle with the uncertainties of truth and falsehood, friendship and betrayal, against a background of cruelty, torture, and disappearances.
