Kiss of the Spider Woman

Cyprus : Kiss of the Spider Woman

Alpha Square presents the play "Kiss of the Spider Woman", an 1983 stage adaptation by Manuel Puig's of his "Kiss of the Spider Woman" novel.

Surprisingly there are no women nor spiders in this play at all. The only two characters are male, and trapped together in a cell in Villa Devoto, 1976, Buenos Aires, Argenina. The prison had one of the worst human rights record in history. With a capacity of 800 the cells were often crammed with more than 2,180 men. The play portrays just two of those men; Molina, a homosexual, and Valentin, a Marxist revolutionary. As an audience, we have no choice but to focus intently on the two characters - one of whom never leaves the cell. The other exits only at the bequest of an Orwellian Big Brother Warden, that you only ever hear and never see.
