Consuelo’s son, Javier - an artist and activist - is forcibly disappeared by the military dictatorship of Argentina in 1977. She now must race to find him. Marisela Treviño Orta’s haunting play Ghost Limb draws upon the myth of Persephone and Demeter to call forth the story of the lives of those destroyed by the Dirty War.

This piece includes violent descriptions of war and torture.
