Description The current production was developed from workshops in which the actors devised characters and action around the theme of vengeance. A writer was engaged to write the play, using improvised material as a starting point. Watts then placed the characters in a basement during the Spanish Civil War. A femme fatale, a nun, a mother figure, a soldier and a man who has had his tongue cut out are hiding from the soldiers who hold the town. They reminisce about the general whose rhetoric seduced them before the war. They tell stories about themselves.
