Gadfly Theatre Productions Presents:|
by Johnna Adams
"I saw pale kings and princes too,
Pale warriors, death-pale were they all;
They cried - 'La Belle Dame sans Merci
Hath thee in Thrall!'"
~From the poem "La Belle Dame Sans Merci" by John Keats
Tracy and Kelly, young students at the University of California, are determined to make a difference by helping the U'wa Indians in Colombia organize a resistance campaign to protest a large petroleum corporation's plan to drill for oil on the tribe's sacred sites.
Three years later, a no longer idealistic Kelly is the crippled survivor of a brutal attack, and Tracy never returned from the ill-fated mission of mercy. One rainy day in Los Angeles, Tracy's mother Elizabeth shows up unexpectedly at Kelly's apartment. This is their first meeting. Slowly, the two women dance through their grief, while negotiating the truth of what brought the two young women together, why they undertook their dangerous humanitarian mission, and what happened on that final day.
TRIGGER WARNING: This show and its promotional events feature frank discussion of sexual assault and violence against women.
