Exquisita agonía (2018)

Play script


“Exquisita Agonía”, written by the Pulitzer Prize winner Nilo Cruz, is the story of a middle-aged woman named Millie, who goes on a manic search for the recipient of her recently deceased husband’s heart, which leads her to fall in love with Amér, who is some thirty years her junior. Like Tennessee Williams’s operatic 1951 play, “The Rose Tattoo,” “Exquisita Agonía” is about a woman who finds life in death, and a dream of love made real by a man whose will to live is equal to her own, in an atmosphere where poetic insights are the norm and women are the center.
