The premise:

Luis Alberto Molina, a gay window dresser, is in a prison in Argentina, serving a sentence for gross indecency. He lives in a fantasy world to flee the prison life, the torture, fear and humiliation. His fantasies turn mostly around movies. Valentin, a Marxist revolutionary, is Molina’s cellmate. Molina tells the stories of his movies as a source of entertainment. The relationship between the two very different men is adversarial at first, but over time, the two men become closer. As the play works toward its tragic conclusion, Molina and Valentin prove just how much they are willing to sacrifice for their beliefs and for each other.

This production contains adult themes and action and may be inappropriate for children. ASL Interpreted performances Friday, June 17 and Sunday, June 19.

Talk-back after the Friday, June 17 performance. Talk-back moderator: Arturo Valdespino, EPCC Interim Dean, Communication and Performing Arts.
