The Abuelas

Written by Stephanie Alison Walker
Directed by Andi Chapman

Gabriela is an Argentine concert cellist living in Chicago with her American husband and adjusting to life as a new mom. A surprise visit from two strangers exposes a devastating secret in this visceral look at the repercussions of Argentina’s so-called “Dirty War.” This West Coast Premiere explores the heart’s capacity for forgiveness — even in the face of the harshest betrayal.
