An English diplomat is kidnapped by guerrillas and kept in a cell while his ransom is negotiated. This passionately angry, bitterly cynical play veers from agitprop to high comedy as the publicity surrounding the murder of one diplomat and the slaughter of hundreds of Brazilain natives plays out on this complex and treacherous theatrical battlefield. From the author of Les Liaisons Dangereuses.
