Gabriela is an Argentine concert cellist living in Chicago with her American husband and adjusting to life as a new mom. Life is good until a visit from two strangers upends everything. Walker's play, about the devastating repercussions of Argentina's military dictatorship from 1976-1983, asks how one goes on after discovering their life is a lie. Does the restoration of truth bring freedom or suffering? Is it possible to integrate two identities into one life? The Abuelas explores these questions as well as the heart's capacity for forgiveness even in the face of the harshest betrayal.
