In order for the play to work dramatically, Dolores and Rafael must have a chemistry that bespeaks love and hate simultaneously. The tone of playfulness shifts abruptly to naked violence as Rafael is dragged away by the father’s lackey, Fermin Dario Tangelsona creepy, fawning fellow. The play reminds us that though we cannot perfectly recapture the mood of s Argentina, bloody and battered by dictatorship, we can, in the current world, still feel Argentina’s pain as it undergoes yet another political, social, and economic crisis.
In addition, Dolores suffers in watching this decent man abused. Theatricality becomes a form of torture for Dolores, and perhaps, the audience. Further adding to the disturbing nature of the scene, the father orders Fermin to dance with Rafael, to humiliate the already victimized tutor.
His sadistic character is captured convincingly by the attractive actor Gerardo Gudino. In a terrifying instance of dangerous games, she plays the role of Daddy’s little girl while her father decides how to punish Rafael.
The terror often overwhelms in its intensity and precision, explaining Built on the Johns Hopkins University Campus. The production offers many similarly vivid and tense scenes of cruelty and aggression. Gambaro’s dramaturgy is one of extremes.

In lieu fambaro an abstract, here is a brief excerpt malwsangre the content: Within this familial microcosm, Gambaro denounces state terrorism and the ignorance of a population that blinds itself to atrocity. They joke childishly with each other, with Dolores eventually sitting on her father’s lap while he malasxngre her on his knee. Though the production, by the Mexican director Alejandra Orozco, downplays the political for the personal, the many confrontations in the play strikingly display the power relationships.
