The work of one of South America’s greatest artists, Blackboard Theatre bring Mario Benedetti’s profound Pedro and the Captain to the London stage for the first time in 30 years.

Within the intimate confines of an interrogation room, two human beings are pushed to their limits, as the eponymous Pedro fights to retain his humanity in the face of an oppressive regime. This psychological battlefield offers up a timely universal reflection on states of oppression and dehumanization wherever they are found – war zones, refugee camps, boardrooms or bedrooms.

The story of Pedro’s disappearance will extend beyond the stage, and we invite you to follow as its effects are felt on social media, throughout the Vault’s many spaces, at demonstrations and on the streets around Waterloo.
