Widows by ARIEL DORFMAN translated from the Spanish by STEPHEN KESSLER and dramatised by GREGORY EVANS Greece, sometime in the recent part of its turbulent modern history: peasant women from a village without men defy all attempts by the military authority to stop them making conflicting claims over bodies that turn up in the river.
Although set in Greece, in order to escape Chilean censorship, the play is a thinly-disguised portrayal of the suffering of millions of peasants in Latin America today.
