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

Children Of Fate

From multi-award-winning Chilean playwright Juan Radrigan comes the UK premiere of his heart-rending classic Children of Fate. Translated and directed by Robert Shaw, Children of Fate exposes with tenderness, humour and infinite love the devastating effects of Thatcherite ideology on the forgotten lives of millions dispossessed and brutalised by years of the Pinochet dictatorship. Much like Las Brutas, Radrigan's powerful play that received critical acclaim at Theatre503 in September 2011, Children of Fate speaks not only for the marginalised and oppressed in Chile but represents communities all over the world who are struggling against the odds to survive.
