Salvage Vanguard Theater Presents: Pinkolandia
From the mind of Andrea Thome and directed by Jenny Larson, Pinkolandia tells the story of two young sisters exiled with their family from Chile to a bizarre Reagan-era Wisconsin, where they are forced to retreat to an imaginary world to help uncover their family’s past. To guard herself from the unknown, eight-year old Gaby uses imagination and innocence to create her own identity in a fantasyland of talking polar bears and melting ice caps, while her 12-year old sister Beny desperately seeks answers from her parents about who she is and what happened in their past. She is met with icy silence and growing distance as her parents arm themselves with anger and the will to forget. When Uncle Ignacio arrives, the entire family starts to feel the ice cracking beneath their feet and the truth bubbling to the top.
