After an unexpected hiatus, Rhubarb Theater Company returns to action, opening its 10th season with this noted Ariel Dorfman piece. It’s a thought-provoking, sometimes profane script that draws upon the novelist, playwright, essayist, academic and human rights activist’s experiences as a political supporter of former Chilean president Salvador Allende, with focus on events related to Allende’s overthrow by military coup in 1973. There have been at least two notable Nashville mountings of the play since 2000, and further back, a 1994 film version directed by Roman Polanski starred Sigourney Weaver and Ben Kingsley. Even further back, a Broadway production starred Glenn Close, Richard Dreyfuss and Gene Hackman. The three-character play describes a woman’s encounter with a man she believes tortured her many years earlier, with deep reflection on aspects of human rights violations, trust and revenge. Rhubarb artistic director Trish Crist co-stars with Phil Brady and Bakari King. Heather Webber directs.
