UK Premiere of Griselda Gambaro’s ‘Siamese Twins’ : 6 – 25 September, London

poster_website

Siamese Twins is one of Griselda Gambaro’s early masterpieces and Gwen Mackeith’s translation captures the powerful black humour and harrowing metaphors. First performed in 1967, this is an early, yet startling brilliant, work by the internationally acclaimed playwright. At the centre of Siamese Twins are Lorenzo and Ignacio, twins who form the well-known archetypes of Cain and Abel. One brother’s envy leads him to subject his more successful and independent twin to cruelty and torture, and finally to conspire in bringing about his murder. Written against the backdrop of Argentina’s Dirty Wars, the play offers an unsettling look at oppression in society through dark comedy and grotesque characters.

Mara Lockowandt and Jorge Perez Falconi direct.
