Stirring Drama The Madres Focuses on the Disappearances in Argentina's "Dirty War"
It's 1979 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and the so-called "Dirty War" -- waged by the military Junta against its own people -- is in full-swing. People are disappearing right off the street, and Carolina and her mother Josefina are searching for "Caro's" pregnant daughter Belén, who has been missing for twelve weeks. The Madres is set in the middle of the military's reign of terror, during which an estimated 30,000 Argentines disappeared and were never heard from again. Las Madres, also known as the Mothers of the Disappeared or Madres de los Desaparecidos, are a group of brave women who demanded the truth about the whereabouts of their missing children, grandchildren and even three of the original founding members of Las Madres. They began marching every Thursday in 1977 and continue marching today. Award-winning Latin film, TV and stage star Ivonne Coll, who plays matriarch Alba Villanueva on Jane The Virgin, leads the cast of Victory Garden Theater's spring world premiere, The Madres, at Chicago's Richard Christiansen Theater.
