The Condor and the Maiden

The Kings Head Theatre, 115 Upper Street, Islington N1 1ON

This engaging play by Dermot Murphy, and directed by Simone Vause, portrays many of the issues that people who live below the poverty line in the developing world face

daily, but which are relevant to us all. Set in South America, THE CONDOR & THE MAIDEN follows the lives of a daughter and her mother. Disputes over land and family loyalty become entwined in their daily struggle to scrape a living, while the mother tries to ensure a better future for her child.

This play was shown at the Kings Head Theatre, Islington, from the 2nd to the 21st March 2010. The performances of Sunday 7th March and Friday 12th March were in aid of Friends of Bolivia, with all proceeds going to the charity.
