On the eve of a papal conclave, a young Canadian journalist travels to a fictional Latin American country to interview a papal candidate about his activities during a period of disappearances under a former military junta.
The playwright, Alice Abracen, is in the National Theatre School playwrights program.
MEGAN GUTIERREZ (27) - Canadian journalist, passionate, not always as on top of things as she thinks
LAURA BALKAN-KOHN (40s) - Political science professor, outspoken, witty, born Jewish
MATIAS IGLESIAS (72 but could pass for 55) - Cardinal and papal candidate: charming, articulate, clever, first language is Spanish
ANGELO FLORES (42) – General in the military junta, charming when he wants to be, but essentially manipulative
GABRIEL MEJIA (25) - Priest with pure intentions, from a simple country background
