The VIP, Single Carrot Theatre

With The VIP Single Carrot delivered a history lesson about a Peruvian Marxist revolutionary group that held a group of politicians, businessmen, and diplomats hostage for 126 days in Lima from late 1996 into 1997. As written and directed by SCT member Aldo Pantoja, however, the play boldly mines the real and imagined dichotomies—Spanish versus English, singing versus speaking, the sacred versus the secular, collaborate versus revolt—that fuel political radicalization and, in the process, they zeroed in on the passionate foibles that ignite people to action. The end result was a thriller as taut as Four Days in September and as emotionally poignant as Dog Day Afternoon.
