Kiss of the Spider Woman by Manuel Puig in an English translation by Allan Baker, presented in partnership with The Vortex Theatre and  directed by Marty Epstein, is the story of a developing relationship between two men—a gay window dresser and a dedicated socialist revolutionary—who share a cell in an Argentinian prison during the rule of the military junta in the 1970s. What brings the two together are their shared humanity and the commonalities that they discover during their time in prison. Originally Puig’s best-known novel, Kiss of the Spider Woman was later adapted by the author for the stage, and was subsequently made into both a film and a musical. While focusing on the relationship between the two main characters, it provides insight into this chaotic chapter in Argentina’s history, as well as the nature of dictatorships.
