Additional performances Friday, November 9, at 8 pm., and Saturday, November 10, at 3 pm. and 8 pm.
In Killing Words, Laura and Ramón embark on a dark emotional game, once entertaining and erotic and now simply perverse. Love that has run its course, separation, the pain that results—both characters react to an extreme situation with decisions that will change their lives irreparably.
Complex and twisted, their story shows that in a relationship everything is relative. Absolute truth does not exist.
Killing Words, a smart, well-structured play from Venezuela, is the sixth of seven plays showcased in the 15th International Festival of Hispanic Theater, which presents DC, Maryland and Northern Virginia audiences with the unusual opportunity to see some of the best in Latin American and Spanish theater performed by award-winning actors and theater groups from Spanish-speaking countries. The ongoing festival, produced by Teatro de la Luna (in Spanish with simultaneous English dubbing), runs through November 17 at Gunston Arts Center-Theater Two, 2700 S. Lang Street in Arlington.
