Beasts (Las Brutas)

Synopsis:
Chile, 1974. In the extreme isolation of the andean foothills, three sisters are found hanged from a rock, their animals slaughtered beside them. . . Justa, Lucia and Luciana are three Coya (indigenous andean) sisters, and the last remnants of a large family who tried to survive in an inhospitable environment. Parents, siblings and neighbours have either died or fled the challenging landscape to find work in distant towns. Faced with ageing bodies, loneliness, and terror of unknown forces which seem to be closing in on them, the sisters make a decision which shocks a nation. against the backdrop of the Pinochet regime's ascent to power, internationally-acclaimed playwright Juan Radrigan examines, movingly and at times humorously, the effect of isolation and fear on the human spirit. With poignant echoes of the 2010 Chilean miners' crisis and resonance with marginalised communities worldwide, Beasts is a haunting portrayal of love, fear and impossible choices

House Of Desires

House Of Desires
House of Desires is the work of a 17th century Mexican nun, and it's one of those plays in which a group of lovers endures a series of comic misunderstandings involving veils, duels and irate patriarchs - until they're all paired off and free to end the evening with a song in praise of Hymen.
