Abuelita de Batman is a dark-humored contemporary play comprised of five stories, each about one couple, that highlight the different dynamics of interpersonal relationships while exposing issues we often try to cover but cannot hide. Although four out of the five stories involve couples and cynical relationships, love comes in at the very end of this production.
Audience members will get to peek into the lives of a cheating politician, a scorned fugitive, a cynical doctor, an AIDS-infected transvestite, and a high-class open marriage. The situations presented might be hard to grasp at first due to their resemblance to actuality and the truth that can be found within the lines, but as a result, Proyecto Teatro's Abuelita de Batman ends up being a clear satire of our present society.
