Peruvian playwright Gonzalo Rodríguez Risco delves into the intersecting lives and minds of three authors searching for inspirational triggers amid the trigger-happy environment of Peru’s political coup in the nineties. When the writers’ demons emerge, the lines between fiction and reality blur in this dark and wickedly witty play that forever changes what it means to be based on a true story.
