THE MASK OF THE JAGUAR KING

Drama

1m, 1f

A two-character, one set play steeped in religious mystery, menace, sexual heat and hope that pits the politics of imperialism against desires of the heart.

 

An American archaeologist finds herself stranded at the site of a Mayan Temple with a dangerous revolutionary intent on stealing priceless artefacts.

 

As they slowly unmask each other's dark personal secrets it remains unclear, who is the real outlaw?  To whom does history belong? And does the value of preserving the past justify the injustices of the present?
