Gloria and Legaspi play characters that explore what it means to be a prisoner in different aspects of the human condition. Internment deals with the relationship of a man and a woman detained in an unnamed facility being held by an unnamed authority called They. In a place where nothing exists and with only bits and pieces of their memories, the characters explore what it means to be an individual in a time where individuals are ostracized for having a form of self and identity. Individuals die in the battle of group thinkers, individuals lose in the field of right and left, there is no more I or me, there is only US and THEM With this play, both Gloria and Legaspi hope to explore with the audience what it means to be caught in the fences people create psychologically and physically.
