Set in Santiago, Chile, three young friends form a bittersweet love triangle during the political upheaval surrounding Salvador Allende's assassination. Told through Leo's memories, the play travels through childhood, first friends and first loves. Passion and poetry weave together in this story of innocence disappeared.

This is clearly one of the most interesting, captivating and thought provoking new scripts to come our way in a long time and it marks Laborde as a young writer who deserves both attention and respect.  

Richard Ouzounian, Toronto Star ★★★★

There's a unique writing voice, considerable stylistic panache and a sophisticated approach to both drama and politics.
