“The Madres”: One family’s story of Argentina’s “disappeared”
The playwright allows us to get to know all five of these characters well enough to comprehend that in the crucible of history people will display the complete range of responses: from servile obedience and loss of conscience to opportunistic collaboration and moral wavering, from keeping quiet to making fearless public statements to helpless intimidation and self-deception. The technical beauty of Walker’s writing come out in the showing of all these responses: No one ever has to describe them in so many words.
