La Chunga (The Woman of our Dreams)

La Chunga (The Woman of our Dreams)T0375719158
A loud-mouthed stud and his beautiful, trusting girlfriend enter a sleazy bar on their way to the local cinema....The inscrutable Chunga serves their drinks, takes their money, says little, but watches everything. Josefino is quickly caught up in a card game that spins out of control, and after a night of drunken brawling, during which he ransoms his girl to the proprietress for gambling money, she is never seen again. Only Chunga knows the secret, and she - of course - won't tell. La Chunga is a spellbinding mystery of sexual fantasy, secret longings and unfulfilled dreams, by one of Latin America's greatest writers. The play shimmers between illusion and reality as a local band of macho men try to imagine the truth about that fateful night when the beautiful Mechita disappeared. This play includes sexual content and strong language.
