In a bid to save their relationship a Spanish couple travel to Cuzco – conquistador stronghold, Inca city of the puma and tourist paradise. But as the altitude sickness, pisco sours and layers of history take hold, they realise their journey has only just begun.
Set along the Inca Trail, this is a sharply contemporary portrait of a couple who become increasingly lost to one another, haunted by their own desires and the ghosts of their colonial past.
Kate O’Connor (Frozen Light, Researcher ‘Minefield’, JMK Finalist) directs the UK premiere of one of Spain’s most acclaimed young playwrights. Translated by William Gregory (Royal Court, Gate), this production emerged from the work of Out of the Wings collective, based at King’s College London.

A couple catastrophically fall out on a backpacking trip through Peru in this spiky fringe drama

Less pisco sours and more April showers, this show explores the blurry line between love and hate, life and death, joy and pain, in a land far away from home
