Cristina seems to have it all money, position, privilege. So why is she beginning to feel she has no control over her life, mind or body? Drawing on the best traditions of Latin American literature and its potent "magic realism," as well as a little-known Biblical tale, playwright Victoria E. Calderon conjures a provocative and unexpected world where the relationships we all cling to mother and child, husband and wife become a swirl of games, deception and surprise. Is Cristina willing to fight for her authenticity and a real place in this world? With a striking, expressionistic staging by director Will Pomerantz, Manipulation promises to be the premiere of a unique new playwriting voice.
