A lovely and thoughtful interview with playwright, Stephanie Alison Walker. Her play The Abuelas opens tonight at Antaeus.
‘The Abuelas’ explores Argentina’s ‘living disappeared’ — babies kidnapped from murdered political prisoners after 1976 military junta
As she typically does when writing a play, Walker started “The Abuelas” by asking herself a question: “When something like this happens, how are you able to forgive? Is it possible? On a personal level, what’s the capacity? More globally, how can you forgive your own country for turning against you?”
The Abuelas opens on Friday, Oct. 11 and continues through Nov. 25.
