About This Show

Ariel Dorfman’s Widows, adapted from his critically acclaimed novel, receives New York premiere.

In a village where all the men have disappeared, the muddy river produces a torn, unrecognizable body. Led by Sofia – a grandmother who awaits the fate of her father, husband and sons, the women fight an army captain and each other for the right to bury it. A powerful and poetic drama of resistance from the author of Death and the Maiden.
