Tooth for Tooth

Play (full-length)

Inés, a librarian living in 1970s Buenos Aires, during the dark period of Argentina's "Dirty War," grieves the death of her daughter at the hands of the left-wing guerrilla, but is forced to reconsider her loyalty to the dictatorship (and her military husband) when a friend goes missing, and she begins to fear the tales of abduction and torture the government insists on denying may be all too real.
