A Note on the Play. Alison Guzman. She does not, however, set the dramatic time in her plays in the Civil War, but rather illustrates the fluctuating nature of historical and personal memory —as well as our perception of current events— through the use of resuscitated phantasms, a current trend in Peninsular Theater written about the hostilities of In this fashion, she deftly dramatizes the constant confrontation and evolution of the past and the present.

Nonetheless the contumacious Young Man resists all plans to emigrate to the United States for economic reasons, and the ensuing struggle with his phantasmal grandfather undoubtedly embodies the perpetual clash between the youthful craving for progress and the importance of remembering.

Once again the dramatic space, this time a claustrophobic bombed-out bedroom of a Catholic orphanage, emanates from the memory of the only living character, in this case the mentally impaired and often childlike Tuso. Like so many others in the aftermath of the Civil War, these three children were kidnapped, converted into orphans and stripped of their identity to prevent them from perpetuating the leftist ideology of their parents. The particulars of their resuscitated state and their appalling assassination at the hands of the callous Sister emerge only gradually through psychophony, as well as associative and trauma memory.

Meanwhile, the ghastly specter of the hideous Sister, whose Manichaean monstrosity resembles an ogre straight out of a fairy tale, neither ceases to haunt Tuso nor the tender apparitions of the three orphans. It is only when the children grasp the connection between the macabre presence of the Sister and their fear of an inconceivable past that they abandon the dilapidated room of her evocation.
