About Plata Quemada

TEATROCINEMA pulls out all the stops to deliver a heart-pounding noir tale of bandits, betrayals and blowouts in "Plata Quemada." Their groundbreaking storytelling intertwines live-action performances with eye-popping illustration and animation, creating a hyper-stylized graphic novel that comes to life right in front of audiences’ eyes.

The backstory: In Buenos Aires, 1965, a daring, complicated bank heist unraveled into a bloody saga that is infamous in South America to this day. Now, Ricardo Piglia’s controversial novel about these real-life events — "Plata Quemada" — has been adapted for the stage. After 2016’s intense and revelatory Historia de Amor, Chilean theatre makers TEATROCINEMA return to Boston with another U.S. premiere.
