The Madres de Plaza de Mayo is a human rights organization formed by the mothers of those who were disappeared during the last Argentine dictatorship, which held power from 1976 to 1983. In partial fulfillment of her Honors Thesis in Theater, Claire Whitehouse ’14 directs five women in an English-language adaptation of their testimonies, which asks the questions: Where is there a place to mourn in a society that refuses to acknowledge that the dead ever existed? And what is our role as foreigners in watching these women in their 35-year march?
