Abandoned by the man she had fallen so desperately in love with, Pakita finds the courage to join a ‘lonely hearts’ group and share her story. However, the tale that unfolds is not as innocent as it first appears. From broken-hearted lover to fragile psychiatric patient, Caballero paints a picture of love, addiction, and peculiar obsession, before unveiling an audacious final act in which life imitates art in the most tragic way.
Pakita was performed during more than 6 years in various venues and different countries including:
UK – Greenwich Theatre & Edinburgh Fringe Festival
US – Teatro Latea -New York
