First publication date: First production date: Pitch Poor thing! His face has changed. Now no one will get us confused. In this absurd and forceful play, two brothers, one weak, one strong, play out a primal scene of envy, cruelty and torture as the strong exerts his power and aggression over the weak. Here the absurd becomes a harrowing metaphor of the most pure and raw reality. First performed in , this is an early, yet startling brilliant, work by the internationally acclaimed Argentine playwright, Griselda Gambaro.
Synopsis At the centre of Los siameses are Lorenzo and Ignacio, twins who form the well-known archetypes of Cain and Abel. The first thing we hear is the sound of his footsteps running down a corridor before he bursts onstage through a door, slamming and locking it behind him.
Moreover, he taunts his brother from behind the door. When Ignacio eventually takes the beating meant for his brother, Lorenzo screens out this distressing violence which we hear but do not see, and calmly writes him a letter which he then slides under the door towards Ignacio. Ignacio is finally admitted to the room by Lorenzo but the sadism continues. He wants Lorenzo to leave the house of his parents so that he can establish his own family there. Ignacio is arrested by these officers, and taken away.
Lorenzo must either leave or accept this new couple. The rest of the play takes place around the prison where Ignacio is wrongfully held prisoner. Editions Gambaro, Griselda. Los siameses: 2 actos.

Edited, Translated and with an Introduction by Marguerite Feitlowitz. Sebastian Doggart , Nick Hern Books, One cannot help wondering whether the first audiences for this play would have identified the menacing figures who appear in it with particular political or public faces. On one hand this play is an outcry and a prescient warning about this the misuse of authority and fearful acquiescence before it and on the other a picture of the exploitation, cruelty and even torture that even partners or siblings can inflict upon each other.
