And for our next act …
The Magical Military Junta …
Will make 30,000 people disappear before your very eyes.

1970s Argentina. A violent, right-wing dictatorship. Thousands of citizens, seized by the authorities, have “disappeared”.

Inside the country’s most disreputable club, a mother is about to risk everything to find her missing daughter.

Spectacular, arresting and totally unique, These Trees are Made of Blood blends cabaret and original live music to tell a vital, human story from Argentina’s Dirty War.

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. Following a sold-out premiere in 2015, the cabaret coup reignites at Arcola for four weeks only.


Praise on the 2015 run:

★★★★★ A wonderful delight … a powerful, compelling musical satire
— LondonTheatre1

★★★★★ An incredibly rewarding experience … rewarded, on the night of our visit, by a standing ovation
— Londonist

★★★★★ This exceptional political satire will be difficult to forget
