Unitec presents ... WIDOWS

Unitec presents ... WIDOWS

By Ariel Dorfman and Tony Kushner
Directed by John Davies
Featuring Unitec's 2014 Year 2 actors in their first full production at Unitec Theatre

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 later 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.

  • Gordon Campbell: On The Best Albums Of 2016

    OK, I’m not even going to try and rationalise this surrender to a ‘best of’ listicle. Still…maybe there is an argument for making some semblance of narrative order out of a year that brought us Trump, Brexit and the deaths of Prince, David Bowie, Leonard Cohen and Alan Vega, who I missed just as much as the Big Three. So without further ado….oh, but first a word from the sponsor More>>
