Abstract:

In this phantasmagorical play, the Camino Real (pronunciation: Cá-mino Reál) is a long highway, a dead end, a police state in a vaguely Latin American country, a nightmare, and an inescapable condition. Characters from history and literature -- Don Quixote, Casanova, Camille, Lord Byron -- inhabit a place where corruption, starvation, indifference and greed have immobilized anyone who tries to escape. Then, into this netherworld, the archetypal Kilroy arrives -- a sailor and all-American guy with "a heart as big as the head of baby." Like others before him in the Camino Real, Kilroy is robbed, conned, turned into a patsy, and he very nearly breaks ... but not quite.
