Peruvian citizens have just elected a President bent on ridding the political and legal system of corruption. A righteous whistleblower, Jesús (Anwar Wolf), and a rash lawyer, Bara (Mateo dAmato), find themselves sharing a cell under the surveillance of two cruel guards. Together Jesús and Bara navigate the landscape of their crimes  what transpires is both sinister and illuminating.

The work, Barabbas, speaks not just to the state of South American politics, but to the present global ethos. Much like the culture of corruption cultivated here in the U.S., Peruvian politics are similarly marred by scandal. Barabbas draws these parallels, and others more biblical, to examine the boundaries of modern morality.

A statement from director Machado, Not since Richard Nelsons, Principia Scriptoriae have I seen a play written by an American that has a neutral and yet passionate view of Latin American politics. Mr. Will has found an objective center to the Latin American male psyche.
