Kiss of the Spider Woman

by Manuel Puig

Amidst Argentina’s Dirty War in the 1970’s, two men share a prison cell. Both are gradually transformed by their guarded but growing relationship and by an obsession with the escape, the fantasy and romance of old Hollywood.

We are proud to present Yale’s first production with an entirely Latinx cast and creative team.
