Memory of Silence in the Land of Eternal Spring: A New Play by Linda Maria Girón
Memoria explores the relationship between memory, trauma and how the mark of a wound may flow deeper than blood. Set in the land of eternal spring, in a town where the population of ghosts outnumber the living, nearby villages are disappearing and roses grow larger than cattle; la familia Noguera face the boundaries of love when tested by the realities of life—aging, war and illness.
