Policarpa: A Staged Reading
By Diana Burbano
In the near future, an inexplicable plague infests La Gran Colombia. Ingrid Bolivar–the brilliant, mad ex-wife of Colombia’s leader–is the only one who knows that the plague is carried by young women of the streets, whom she adopts and uses as weapons against the government. But when Policarpa, Ingrid’s secret weapon, falls in love with a top government official, she resists becoming an instrument of destruction and instead seeks to become a savior through sacrifice.
