'And for our next act, the Magical Military Junta, will make 30,000 people disappear before your very eyes.'
Step into Buenos Aires for this immersive theatrical experience, which pulls back the curtain on a secretive state, and shines the spotlight on a powerful act of resistance.
These Trees are Made of Blood is a political musical cabaret

Following a sold-out premiere at Southwark Playhouse in 2015, a reworked production opened at the Arcola in 2016.
