Time : 7:30 PM to 9:00 PM
The play is a riveting, funny and heartwarming story of a hill farmer and his family set against the backdrop of the civil unrest of the late 1970s.
Three narrators take you on an exotic journey through the mountains and plains of Central America as they tell us the story of a simple peasant with a big family, a big heart and a small piece of land. Although set in a country and time far away, the events bear a remarkable resemblance to events in India today – the dynastic thirst for power, the blatant genocide, the license raj, the people’s movement to protest injustice, and the rise of an unlikely hero. Filled with Spanish ballads, election spoofs, comical Americans, a magical set design, and a whole lot more, the play is both a quick peek into history as well as a humorous look in the mirror.
The play first opened in September 2013, at Prithvi Theatre, Mumbai.
