Manipulation Poster


Closed August 22, 2011

With a striking, expressionistic staging by director Will Pomerantz, Manipulation promises to be the premiere of a unique new playwriting voice.

Why See Manipulation?

Cristina outwardly appears to have everything she can desire, however, she cannot enjoy her life. Her husband, Mauricio, torments her with flagrant displays of infidelity while her mother, Dona Beatriz, encourages her to have an affair with Luis. When Cristina turns to a psychoanalyst for help, he proceeds to take advantage of her. With every attempt to find herself, Cristina is manipulated back into submission until she finds a way to cut the ties that bind her to her previous existence.
