La Razón Blindada

September 9 - October 15

This sublimely witty and provocative play by Argentine playwright Arístides Vargas was inspired by the classic novel El Quixote by Cervantes, The Truth About Sancho Panza by Franz Kafka, and testimonies from Chicho Vargas and other political prisoners held in Rawson Prison during the Argentina’s 1970’s “Dirty War.” Two political prisoners committed to solitary confinement are allowed to interact with one another for one hour a week — but must remain in their chairs and never stand. As they entertain each other with stories of Don Quixote and his squire, Sancho Panza, we witness the power of theater to transport them, and us, into the realm of the imagination, despite repressive conditions and even as we remain bound to our seats.  Presented in Spanish with English supertitles.
