"THE MADRES" SAYS "NEVER AGAIN" TO A GENOCIDAL DICTATORSHIP WITH STRONG PERFORMANCES FROM IVONNE COLL (JANE, THE VIRGIN) AND LORENA DIAZ
Although the subject matter is difficult and depressing, playwright, Stephanie A. Walker, succeeds at showing the audience both the horror of the genocide and the beauty and pleasures of the Argentinian family lifestyle that the "Dirty War" interrupted and ended for at least 100,000 innocent civilians.
The play, which opened in Los Angeles last year could not be better, clearly shows how impossible it is for civilians to survive or even to publicly protest the advancing hatred of a violent ideology once a dictator-like regime has taken physical control of the populace including their clergymen, police and legislators.
