Beside the river, an old woman waits.

The younger women bicker and are lost in the grief of their village.

These are evil days, men are murdered, and others simply disappear.

The military junta carve up the land like a roasted goat.

Then something appears in the river, and the soldiers start to lose control.

 

Widows by Ariel Dorfman and Tony Kushner, is a powerful indictment of the military dictatorships that ruled in much of Latin America in the latter half of the 20th century. The play deals with the lives of a group of widows and how, under the leadership of their matriarch, they evoke from the river a truth that cannot be denied.  Directed by John Davies and featuring a cast of Unitec’s second year actors.
