October 27 – November 6, 2011 in Goodman's Owen Theatre

Around 2 hours and 10 minutes

Set in the 1970s in Chicago and Santiago, Chile, this new plays tells the story of Joe, a young American economist and protégé of legendary University of Chicago professor Milton Friedman, who travels to Chile to promote free-market economics. When a coup erupts and political power shifts, mass killings and disappearances soon follow, and the new military regime enlists los Chicago Boys—a group of Chilean economists trained at the University of Chicago—to help them develop a capitalist economy. Joe's allegiances should be clear, but when he falls in love with a woman whose brother is one of the disappeared, he quickly finds that theory and practice collide in a very messy world.
