Night Train to Bolina at the Ring Theatre through September 24
In a war-torn, unidentified country in Latin America, two children use fantasy as a means of escaping the calamity of combat, as well as their own abused and impoverished lives. Starving, battered, neglected, and looking for a way to flee the guerrilla warfare ravishing their home, Mateo and Clara flee their devastated rural village for the city of Bolina, a mythical metropolis where "kites go to die." Both come from abusive, unloving families and find spiritual and even sexual comfort in each other. Written by Miami native and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Nilo Cruz, Night Train to Bolina is a haunting and mystical tale of unintended consequences whose characters walk the fine line between innocent adolescence and a jaded adulthood scarred by truth and tragedy.
