Omission by Alice Abracen
Directed by Anne Harper
January 19 - February 3, 2018 on the Mainstage
Omission asks the question: is forgiveness and redemption possible? On the eve of a papal conclave, a young Canadian journalist interviews an ambitious, popular Latin American cardinal about his past activities during a period of disappearances under a military junta. When she agrees to turn her recorder off, they are forced to confront the ghosts that haunt them both.
An edge-of-your-seat thriller written by emerging playwright Alice Abracen, Omission makes its world première exactly 100 years after Alumnae’s very first show.
