Synopsis

Tragedy befalls a once joyful couple. Now Adriana and Juan Pablo survive by longing and coming to terms with choice, and life’s twist and turns.  Set in their beach house, the matriarch attempts to save her husband from insanity. Meanwhile, he straddles the fine line between delusion and the uncanny; he is trying to seize his last opportunity to speak to their deceased daughter.

Branded with IATI’s signature tradition of pushing theatrical boundaries, and following the surreal dimensions of Myrna Casas’ words, our creative team has designed a metaphorical world where her characters survive.
