Country:United States
Play Title:Captivated
Runtime:11-30 minutes
Synopsis:This fifteen-minute experimental play was inspired by the true story of the media spectacle made of the young Elian Gonzalez. As the play opens, the Young Man is 20 years old, looking back upon the various claims that had been made upon him when he was 5 years old. The members of the Family press these competing claims as if living them in the present. Into this realm of rival claims enters the Hostage Negotiator, who issues orders and guidance regarding the extraction of a hostage. The Young Man views himself as that “hostage,” reliving his astonishment at being the 5-year-old pawn in the politics of family and nation. Yet he talks through his process of reclaiming his identity and his future, linking the truth of his adult identity to the truth that he could not help but speak as a child.
