Night Train to Bolina

by Nilo Cruz

Directed by Fabio Polanco

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. Dancing on a fine line between innocent fantasy and harsh reality, Mateo and Clara explore their imaginations in a world of dark mysticism and denied love. Written by Miami native and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Nilo Cruz.
