An Aluna Theatre production presented by Tarragon Acoustic.
Political passion, poetry, sexual identity, and what it means to “disappear” – including the loss of ideals and individual spirit – weave a bittersweet triangle in this tale of stolen youth. Set in Santiago, Chile, Leo, is a one-act play told from the perspective of a twenty-year-old pleasure centered man who has become a desaparecido (disappeared) after the democratically elected Chilean government is overthrown with the assassination of the president, Salvador Allende, in the military coup d’etat of 1973. Leo takes us on a journey through childhood, first friends, first loves and an abruptly ended adolescence.
