No. 31 Guillem Clua: SKIN IN FLAMES (La pell en flames) Translated by DJ Sanders. 2008.
Skin in Flames offers a poignant commentary on the devastating effects of war and the iconic power of an image. The play takes us on an emotional and intellectual journey through the unexpected encounter of a photojournalist and the young girl captured in his haunting photograph twenty years earlier. Guillem Clua penetrates the headlines to explore the real life drama and personal tragedies.
