Mauricio Kartún, Sacco and Vanzetti
Combining the dramaturgical techniques of documentary and epic theatre, Kartun deals with the story of the two famous Italian anarchists who were tried for murder, found guilty on circumstantial evidence and condemned to deathin the USA in the early 20th century. The authorities’ hostility and impartiality against the anarchist immigrants was palpable throughout the seven-week trial. As the author says, the play was to him “enormously rewarding in terms of reviews, audiences and the box office. The hall in Corrientes St in Buenos Aires was filled with cheers for anarchy and abuse against the judges”. The play enjoyed great success in many other cities in Argentina, the USA, Montevideo, Rome and elsewhere.
