I was totally mesmerized by this dramatization. So much so that, even though I only heard a few lines live on L.A. Theater Works the day it was broadcast, not even the title, I went back weeks later and searched to try to find the play. I was able to download and listen to the program in its entirety, and was not disappointed. The performances of both actresses were excellent, but I was simply rapt, enraged, and challenged by the acting of L. Scott Caldwell, who plays the dictator's mother.The subject matter is extremely heavy, but the pace is quick enough so it doesn't weigh down the drama.
The tension between the two women, watching their mutual resentment turn to something bordering on a type of affection, was extremely well crafted.
Cora, the dictator's mother.
When the dictator's mother describes what she did (can't say what it is), it was amazing. It's like I was there.
