Two Big Black Bags

Dates: August 9-11, 2019 
Run time: approximately 95 minutes with no intermission 
Location: Lalie Theatre

James, an Argentine veteran of the Malvinas/Falklands War, wakes one morning to a big surprise in his living room: two big black bags containing ten million dollars. Determined to turn his life around, James embarks on an adventure from Seattle to South America. But is he willing to face the ghosts of his past in order to transform his future?

Based on an overlooked but deeply significant moment in Latin American history, this new fast-paced drama by Julieta Vitullo draws on music, movement, and magical realism to craft a universal story about the devastating effects of violence and the long and winding road to healing and redemption.

Two Big Black Bags will be presented as a scripts-in-hand, workshop production in collaboration with eSe Teatro, Parley, and ACTLab. The play will be presented in English with some spoken Spanish and music in Spanish.
