The governor of a Mexican state teams up with a businessman and pays a group of policemen to travel to the other side of the country to kidnap a journalist who has published a book in which she accuses them of trafficking in young girls. These policemen can “legally” kidnap her, torture her, kill her by the roadside and dump her body in the sea where no one will probably ever find it. They can unleash horror and get completely away with it. Or perhaps not...

In the most dangerous country in the world for journalists and activists, some women are standing up to the growing political power of organised crime. One of them is Lydia Cacho, who has taken a stand against politicians, gangsters, paedophiles and murderers of women. This play is based on her biography: Memorias de una Infamia in which she describes the modus operandi of a government that is complicit in the corruption and the violence, as well as the courageous testimony of women and girls from her country. 

Based on Memorias de una Infamia, by Lydia Cacho, winner of the Harold Pinter Prize for International Writer of Courage in the United Kingdom.
