Just when you think you're in for a fantastical exploration of aching sexual desire, Benito comes home from Iraq to find his wife a changed woman. Gabriela holds conferences with the moon and is struggling to define her independent life, but Benito has ghastly secrets of his own to confess.
A masterpiece of language, Jose Rivera starkly contrasts poetry and prose until you can taste the sand and feel the moonlight. But more than anything, this play is hot. Like in that way. Wow.
