This is a riveting production from one of the most creative contemporary theater groups in Argentina best known for dark, cutting-edge productions. This production features turn-of-the-century china dolls abandoned by children of the upper-class. The title of this deeply disturbing play refers to an observation room made of one way glass, from which a person's behavior can be secretly observed. From this vantage point the audience watches as a young boy's stormy relationships, despair and solitude, lead to acts of cruelty, repression and finally murder.
