Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre-Media Centre


It is the 1960s in Argentina, a time of civic, economic, and cultural turmoil. Window-dresser Molina is in
the third year of his eight-year prison sentence for sexual deviancy. He lives in the fantasy world of cinema,
conjuring up the beautiful Aurora, his favorite film star. And while he loves her, he most fears visits from
her in the form of the Spider Woman, a vampy diva who kills men with her kiss. Molina’s life changes when
Marxist revolutionary Valentin is pushed into this cell after being tortured. Valentin is hostile towards the
flamboyant Molina, drawing a line down the center of the cell to keep their worlds separate. After the brutal
torture of Valentin, the pair develop a kinship and Molina keeps Valentin’s secrets while sharing his daydreams
of Aurora. Their relationship begins to extend beyond simple friendship into a true love and dedication
to each other – leading to a sacrifice worthy of the cinema.
