«STEVENSON, WITH HER SKILLED USE OF WORDS AS DRAMATIC ACTION, MAKES THAT THE APPARENT SIMPLICITY OF THIS, HER SECOND TEXT, SPREADS IN PROFOUND ECHOES AND SUGGESTIONS» 

– EL MERCURIO

It is Christmas in the nineties and a robbery at the O’Higgins Bank on Apoquindo Avenue in Santiago ends with eight dead. One of these is Hilda Peña’s son and, from then on, everything turns to sorrow.

A female testimony of something that happened beyond the official accounts, Hilda Peña is a personal tale of the transition to democracy. The play won the Breakout category when it premiered at the XVI National Drama Exhibition in October 2014.
